Please note: Most of these features are only available from your group's public-facing site, not in the Member Portal or OLP App.
Access: The only persons who have access to these webmaster features are the elected officers of the district/local, plus any assigned OLP Webmasters.
These additional OLP Webmasters are managed by the Secretary/Controller of the local, or your parent organization in the case of a district. Elected officers lose their Webmaster permissions when their term of office ends.
