Back-to-School Series: Create an OTAN Account

Posted on 9/1/2020

This is the first in a series of news items that will provide information about essential features of OTAN for you to know as you and your colleagues begin the new school year.

We encourage adult educators to create an account on the OTAN website. Creating an account is the easiest way to stay connected to the latest developments throughout the school year and it’s free! (If you already have an OTAN account, take a minute to log in and make sure that all your information is correct. If you need help finding your old account, please contact us!)

To create an OTAN account, first go to the OTAN website.

In the upper right-hand corner, click on the Join OTAN menu, and then click Membership.

On the next page, create your OTAN account by clicking on Register as a new user to begin (or log in to your account with an email address).

On the next page, you can enter or update your contact and agency information on the registration form. Within the form, indicate your preferences for receiving OTAN Publications and Notifications. One note – if you check Professional Development under Email notifications, you will receive email notices when there is an open training in your area, even if it is not at your agency.

Make sure to save your changes once you have entered all your information. Once you have an account, you can log in and adjust your contact information and preferences.

You’re all set to stay in touch with OTAN! Look for email notices, Digests, and Newsletters throughout the school year and we look forward to staying in touch! (And encourage a colleague to create an OTAN account as well!)

OTAN activities are funded by contract CN180031 from the Adult Education Office, in the Career & College Transition Division, California Department of Education, with funds provided through Federal P.L., 105-220, Section 223. However, OTAN content does not necessarily reflect the position of that department or the U.S. Department of Education.
