Only Members of PITCA are able to access the other 13 sub-tabs under Members Only.

 These are just some of the many Benefits of Membership.

☆ Instructions for dues paying PITCA Members to Sign Up

There are 12 sub-tabs under the Members Only tab, including Calendar, Announcements, Pressing News, Forum, Buy-Sell-Trade, Lending Library, Member Directory and more.

The Members Only section is password protected. In order to see these sub-tabs and access this information you must Sign Up to our website.

PITCA Members will need to Sign Up only once. To do this, click Sign Up in the upper right hand corner of the website page.

When you've answered the questions and submitted your application for membership the Webmaster will receive an email saying "You have a new member to approve on Pressing Iron and Trivet Collectors of America." The Webmaster will check to make sure the person applying is a PITCA member. Please allow 12-24 hours for approval.

Once approved, you'll receive an email notification. You'll also notice your name then appears in the upper right hand corner of the Home Page. You are signed in ... there is no need to Sign Out between visits.

Now, as a registered member of the PITCA website, all sub-tabs under Members Only become visible.

FYI: Your PITCA website registration is linked to the valid email address you originally used to register. If your email address changes you will need to go through the Sign Up process again.

If you need further help to Sign Up or Sign In, Contact the Webmaster.
