HomeHow-to for Members
This editor is similar to a word processor on your computer. Highlight the text you want to replace with your mouse, and then type over the existing text. To replace an image, right click on the image until a popup menu appears. Select "change image" from this menu and follow the on screen instructions. You can either replace an image from your computer, or select an existing uploaded image.

When typing in this editor, avoid using <enter> or <return> by itself. If you want a line break or carriage return, always press shift+enter or shift+return. This will ensure formatting and avoid any formatting errors. If something does not look correct, do not press save at the bottom of the screen. Cancel and start over. After your changes are acceptable, press "save".

Participate in the Member Discussion Forum

Our long-awaited Forum is now "live"!  Here you can read and contribute to discussion topics, find others who share your interests or see if someone would like to attend an activity with you. Members and volunteers will share favorite restaurants, movies, and activities around town. 

In order to participate in the Forum you will need to log in, as these discussions are for members and volunteers only. When you first visit the Forum, be sure to read our Forums Policy posted there.

If you would like to have someone walk you through the process of using the Forum, send an email to Northeast Village PDX office and someone will contact you to set up a time to do that.

Find or Make Vendor Recommendations

Northeast Village PDX maintains a list of Vendors and Contractors recommended by Village members. Use the link below to visit the Vendor Recommendation page and follow instructions there to find a vendor or to recommend someone you've had a good experience with. You will need to log in to visit this page, as these recommendations are available to members and volunteers only. 

Please note: These individuals and businesses have not been vetted by the Village, although individual Village members have had positive experiences with them. Please use discretion when hiring someone.

Use the Member Directory

Like the Discussion Forum, this feature is available only to Village members and volunteers. To use it, please log in with your user ID and Password, following the instructions above.

Member Directory

To see a list of all current members and volunteers
Click the Search button (lower right corner of the Search Criteria box). Use arrows at the bottom to advance through multiple pages. 


To find one particular member or volunteer
Enter either first name or last name in the Search Text box, then click the Search button. All individuals who match the search criteria will be displayed.


To look for a different member or volunteer
Use the Reset button to clear the first search and enter a new name in the Search Text box. Click Search again (or use your ‘Enter’ key) and new name(s) will be displayed.


To search for members with common areas of interest
Leave the “Search Text” field blank, then click on the drop down menu labeled “Interests.” 

Select a topic from the list to find members who have indicated an interest in that topic.  

Click Search and all Villagers who have an interest in the area you selected will be displayed.


To search for members in a particular neighborhood of the Village with common areas of interest
Leave the “Search Text” field blank, then click on the drop down menu labeled “Interests.” 

Select a topic from the list to find members who have indicated an interest in that topic.  

Then click on the drop down menu labeled “Metro Area” and select a neighborhood from the list provided.

Click Search and all Villagers in that particular neighborhood who have an interest in the area you selected will be displayed.

*You may also search for members with common areas of interests within a specific zip code of our Village by using the “Within” options to enter a zip code and distance from the zip code you wish to use.  

* The “Recent Membership” drop down menu offers options that are apt to be too limiting, so we suggest omitting that field when searching.

* Note that a less specific search (one that sorts by interest only) will return the largest number of results.  If you add Metro Area or zip code to your search, the results will be limited.   

Finally, note that you can enter only one interest, metro area and zip code at a time.  If you want to find members in several different metro areas who share interests, you will have to do more than one search.  Use the Reset button to clear the existing search and start over.
