Activating Your Free Account

There is no additional cost to sign up for online tools and support. It’s a membership benefit, and Sign In only takes about five minutes if you have your membership number and chapter ID handy.

Note: If you joined TOPS® online, then you created your own username and password at that time, and you do not need to activate your account.

  1. Go to www.tops.org and click Sign In button located in the upper right hand corner of the website.
  2. On the Sign In page, click the link free TOPS Account in the yellow box labeled “Sign In Option”
  3. Enter your 7-digit membership number. (see the section "How Do I Find My Membership Number?")
  4. Enter your Chapter ID in this format: WI 0123 (2-letter state/province code + 1 space + 4-digit chapter number) If your chapter number is less than four digits long, just add zeroes in front to get to four.
  5. Click the Activate Your Account button.

If you see the message, “Member Login and Password Activated,” then you’re all set.

You should receive an email confirmation of your username and password if we have a valid email address on file. We recommend that you jot down your username and password and keep it in a safe place.

If you receive the message, “The login ID already exists for this membership," then just go back to the member login page and click on the “Forgot my password” link in the “Sign In” box.


How Do I Find My Membership Number?

You can find your 7-digit membership number on the back cover of TOPS News in the upper left corner. Half-price members who don’t receive TOPS News will find it on the membership card mailed to them. If you provided an email on a paper application, then you received a welcome email with your number as soon as your application was entered at Headquarters. If you can’t find your welcome email or magazine, email support@tops.org.


Is Your Account Locked?

For your security, your account is locked after five unsuccessful login attempts. The only way to unlock it is to contact our web support team at support@tops.org.

We don’t want you to miss a single issue of TOPS News, so please be sure to double-check your address when changing it.  We also encourage you to send an email to wondering@tops.org with your new address, especially if you suspect you have missed one or more issues of TOPS News.  Addresses for TOPS News are pulled at least six weeks before your magazine arrives in your mailbox.  The US Postal Service will not forward magazines for more than 60 days, so please be sure to update your address with us immediately after moving and let us know if you've changed it so we can clear any "bad address" codes from your profile.

When changing your address, use correct abbreviations. If unsure, type entire word. Standard abbreviations include:

  • St. for Street
  • Blvd. for Boulevard
  • Ave. for Avenue
  • Apt. for Apartment

Canadian Members: Postal codes must be entered with the first three elements separated from the last three by one space. (Do not use a hyphen.) Also, a unit number is placed before the civic number, with a hyphen between.

U.S. Members: The post office will not deliver to an incomplete address, so it’s important to include direction and full street name as shown below:

INCORRECT: 130 Main Apt #2

CORRECT: 130 Main St E Apt 2

If using the ZIP + 4 code, please enter ZIP, then a space, then the 4-digit code.
