Egencia New Login Process

Contributed by Sheryl Scott on 11/17/17 

View printable version

Effective the week of November 21, 2017, all Egencia clients will soon discover a new login process. Email addresses will replace usernames to log in to the Egencia booking website and mobile app.

It's only good news for you:

1. There is no action required from you. The username to email address change will be automatic and your password will remain unchanged.

2. Email addresses are easier to remember than usernames. With all the credentials we have to memorize, that's one less thing to think about.

3. You will be informed before the change via email. A reminder message will also be displayed on the login screen when you enter your former username instead of your email address.

talk by Maya von Rossum, on her new book, Green Amendment: Securing our Rights to a Healthy Environment

The Constitutional Change We Need to Protect Our Priceless Natural Resources

For decades, activists have relied on federal and state legislation to fight for a cleaner environment. And for decades, they’ve been fighting a losing battle. The sad truth is, our laws are designed to accommodate pollution rather than prevent it. It’s no wonder people feel powerless when it comes to preserving the quality of their water, air, public parks, and special natural spaces.

But there is a solution, argues veteran environmentalist Maya K. van Rossum: bypass the laws and turn to the ultimate authority—our state and federal constitutions.
