Membership Database Upgrade

Exciting news!  The Made in Montana team is working hard this fall to upgrade the current Made in Montana membership database to a new, user friendly, system.  Starting in January, Made in Montana members will be able to log in to their listing, edit information, and update products and photos.   We are excited about this transition and the long-awaited change to the system that gives members control over their membership information and online directory listing.
