Update your name, address, phone or email

The NFH website provides you with the ability to change your member profile information at any time. 

To update your member profile:

1)   Sign in to the website using your username and password to display your Member Profile page.

2)    If you don’t see the page, click Profile Home in the MY PROFILE box on the left; and your name appears in the section heading.


3)    To change your profile information, click EDIT below your name, on the right side of the green PERSONAL INFORMATION bar to display the Edit My Member Profile page.

Information is divided into three sections and you can update most fields:

ACCOUNT INFORMATION – NFH number, username, password, email address
PERSONAL INFORMATION – name, address, phone, alt-email address
CABIN INFORMATION – tract, lot #, local association, FS region, forest


Notes: Your member profile information is private and secure from general public access. To provide an additional layer of privacy, you can override the allowed visibility at the field level in your profile. The default for most fields is Members Only, allowing only other signed-in members to view your contact information only under the limited circumstances of being a member of a committee, the NFH Board, or participation in an on-line forum. Using the privacy icon to the left of each field, you can change the default setting to Private, meaning that field is not displayed under any circumstances to any other member of the system.


4)    After updating your information, you must scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save Changes to record your changes.



How does NFH protect my privacy and security?

By policy, NFH does not sell or share member information with outside organizations.

Exception:  By mutual agreement, NFH and Member Tract Associations exchange contact information for cabin owners associated with the tract organization as part of the standard process for paying annual NFH membership dues.

NFH members have access to their member profile by signing into the NFH website.  Your member profile information is private and secure from general public access. Under very limited circumstances, your profile may be visible to other signed-in NFH members.  You can override the allowed visibility at the field level in your member profile so that your information is not visible under any circumstances to any other member of the system.  Please see the Update your name, address, phone or email help topic for directions for setting privacy levels.

The NFH website uses state-of-the art network security and our credit card transactions are processed by BluePay, a leading credit card merchant processor. NFH retains only the last-4 numbers of your credit card for reference purposes. By not retaining your credit card number in our system, NFH and its members are not exposed to credit card theft through hacking attempts. NFH members must re-enter their credit card number with each transaction, a minor inconvenience compared to the risk of credit card theft.


Want the NFH Newsletter by email?

If you are a NFH member and are not receiving the NFH Newsletter by email, we probably don’t have your current email address on file.

If you are a Forest Service employee and wish to receive a complimentary copy of the NFH Newsletter by email, click here to sign up.   


Remove email from NFH list

To remove your email address from our system:

Send an email to NFH Membership Administrator Melody Knox at to inform her of your change of status (e.g. sold cabin). 

Tip:   Did you know you can transfer your NFH membership to the new cabin owner?  By providing us with the new cabin owner’s contact information, we will transfer the remaining portion of this year’s NFH membership to the new owner of your cabin.  The new cabin owner’s NFH membership will renew the following January for an individual member, or your tract’s next renewal date for a NFH Member Tract member.


Pay annual membership dues

If you are a NFH individual member, you can pay your dues online securely using the NFH website or you may send your check for prorated dues to NFH, PO Box 336, Talent, Oregon, 97540. To pay online, you must first sign in to the NFH website.

Notes: Members who pay NFH dues through their local cabin association (NFH Member Tracts) do not pay dues through our NFH website or by mail to us individually; tract members pay NFH dues directly to the local association, who in turn pays NFH for the entire group.

If you are uncertain regarding your local cabin association status, please refer to the Get Involved-->Cabin Association Directory and look for an asterisk to the left of your tract name. An asterisk indicates a NFH Member Tract.

All NFH Individual Memberships expire and are subject to renewal each January.  Individual members receive NFH dues notice alerts by email on the following schedule:

·         30 days prior to your membership expiration/renewal date (early January).

·         1 day prior to your expiration date  (if not paid, end of January)

·         30 days after expiration date  (if not paid, end of February)

To pay your membership dues:

1)    Click the link in your dues renewal email notice to sign in and view your Membership Information page.

Or sign in anytime during dues renewal (January-February) and navigate to MY PROFILE
àMembership Info from the left side of the page.

Renew with existing invoice1 (2)

View your invoice by clicking the Invoice icon (1st from left) of the selected transaction.

To initiate payment by credit card:

1)    Click the Online Payment icon (2nd from left) to display the Payment page.

2)    Fill in your credit card information, click Payment, and confirm your transaction.


·         Your payment is securely processed, generally within seconds.

·         Your membership status will be updated upon payment confirmation.

·         You will also receive a confirming Thank You email notice and your invoice will reflect payment in full. The online invoice is your receipt.

You can view or print your invoice at any time for your records. The online invoice remains with your NFH member account for future viewing/printing.

Thank you for renewing your NFH membership!
