SLSA Portal is a one-stop shop for all of the organisation’s member’s online needs. It is designed to unify what are currently entirely separate websites and databases into one online location where every single SLSA service will be available through the Portal. The Portal is located at portal.sls.com.au.  It is for use by active, registered members of surf clubs.  The Members Portal contains News, Announcements, Events and Jobs across the whole organisation, Member’s Forum, an organisation document library including Branches and Clubs.  It allows members to apply for Service awards and YEP awards and gives members the ability to add their own content (once approved).  LIFESAVING ONLINE has now been rolled into the Portal allowing online functions to members such as renew membership, updating membership details, viewing Awards, patrol roster & patrol hours.  Click on article for instructions on how to create your log in account to the Members Portal.
