Did you know that you can now log out of VSPN member’s only areas? Whether someone else forgot to logout of their account or if you want to make sure you are logged out yourself, go to any member’s only area (such as message boards, VSPN Notebook®) and click on the Logout link on the upper right side of the page. Many of our VSPN pages are not behind member’s only security and will not have a logout link, but all member’s only areas will have this feature to help you keep your account information secure.

The VIN-VSPN offices will be closed next Thursday and Friday for the Thanksgiving holiday in the USA. The VSPN administrative staff will be checking email and applications over the holiday weekend but response time may be slightly delayed. We hope everyone has a safe holiday.
