1 Build Your Member Profile

Go to www.asrt.org/myasrt and log in using the blue button at the top right. Select the drop-down box in the upper right corner of the page (next to the My ASRT link) and select Profile.

​Upload a Photo
Under the photo silhouette, click on the Actions drop-down menu and then on Change Picture. You can upload a photo from your personal computer or smartphone.


​Add Your Information
Update your profile with your bio, educational background, job history, honors, awards and professional associations by clicking on the Add button at the right corner of each section. ​You can​ also import your information directly from your LinkedIn account.


​Update Your Privacy Settings
Find the options for your privacy settings by selecting the My Account drop-down menu and clicking on the Privacy Settings link. The default setting shows only your name, city and state. If you would like other members or specific contacts to see more information about you, select the appropriate permission button. For example, the default setting for your email address is Only Me. This means that other members cannot see your email address in your profile. For information you want others members to see, choose Members Only. This is also where you can opt in or opt out of being listed in the member directory.
