What’s happening here?The NSS is in the process of moving to the Neon Customer Relationship Management (NeonCRM) software, which includes a store module. Although the membership management system is not quite ready, we’re implementing a new NSS Bookstore now because the old one was failing and insecure.
To access the bookstore, you must have a Neon account.Since we have not yet moved your NSS file to Neon, you’ll need to create a new, temporary Neon account. It requires only your name, address, email, and phone, and you create your own login name and password. When you place an order, this information will automatically populate in the shopping cart.
Ready to go?Create your account now, and go shopping! ! But remember, this is only for the Bookstore; do NOT use Neon to create or renew your membership, or make a donation.
Want to know more?This is a full Neon account. You do everything via the What would you like to do? dropdown list. You can use all the functions, except view the Member Directory. That’s because you are not an NSS member in Neon. Yet. Again, don't do that now; rather, go to Get Involved on the menu bar, and click on Join or Renew.
Do you want to order NSS books? As a member, you are entitled to a 10% discount, but member data has not yet been uploaded to the Neon system. So to enable your discount, simply send an email using this link to email@example.com with “Make Me a Member” as the subject. Be sure to tell us your name, NSS# and member type. We’ll make you a temporary NSS member in Neon in the background and let you know as soon as it’s ready. Do NOT use the Membership Status/Renewal link; that’ll cost you money! This temporary account will go away when the Neon membership function is activated.
Feel free to look around Neon. Most of its functionality is available; it just doesn’t yet have NSS membership data loaded. But you can flesh out your profile, change your password, add a shipping address, and even make a one-time or recurring donation. But don’t change your membership type or renew; for now, that must be done via the old system, using the web forms.
What if I forget my password? Click on the Get Help link on the login page. If you forgot your login name or password, enter the email address associated with your account and we'll email you a link to recover that information. Watch for the full Neon implementation soon! We’ll send you a message notifying you that your real NSS account information has been loaded. You’ll receive a unique temporary login to access it, and can then change it to your own private login.
