Teamhouse.SpecialForcesAssociation.org — the Special Forces Association new members-only website was launched in July 2021.

The reason for the new system is to bring our member records into a secure and manageable system — the main benefit for members is connectedness. Now it is possible for the benefits you’ve experience at a local level to be expanded nationwide.

For those considering whether or not to join SFA, many will see how the members-only access to a nationwide SFA brotherhood sets it apart from other groups supporting the SF community. Many other groups offer programs to assist veterans which are similar to SFA programs. But none provide the means for one-on-one networking on any level.

How the Teamhouse website works for SFA members:

  • Provides safe, secure, nationwide networking for our unique population.
  • Bridges the gap between those in and out of uniform — offering opportunities for service and assistance to both active and inactive members.
  • Members can list businesses and locate other SF-friendly businesses.
  • Members can find mentors to help with civilian transition.
  • Members exiting the military can find support the SF4Life programs.
  • An ever growing list of SF Brotherhood resources

How to log in and set up your Member Profile.

STEP 1:

Log in to the TeamHouse website at teamhouse.specialforcesassociation.org.

If you need your username or password, click the Forgot My Username/Password button. If you have a problem logging in lower section of this window you should use the “Click here” link for assistance.

STEP 2:

Click on “Profile.”

After selecting “Profile” you will enter the “Member Profile” dashboard.

In the following steps you can update the sections (hightlighted in yellow) — “Basic Member Information,” “Standard Member Directory,” “Business Directory,” and “Your Website Functions” section.

STEP 4:

Click on “Standard Member Directory” on the Member Profile Dashboard

Select “General Info” (CRITICAL STEP)

The “Visibility” setting is very important because it designates whether or not you can be found on the Teamhouse directory. The default is set to “Do not list me in the directory.” If you would like to fully participate in the SFA TeamHouse network this must be changed.

There are several options available in the dropdown menu (see illustration). You can select the contact method you are most comfortable with.

You may also enter add a photo and a biography to your profile. For your biography, while your military history is important, don’t underestimate the value of your post-military life. Share what you’ve done since you retired from the military and what you are doing now.

STEP 5:

Business Directory: Enter up to five businesses to your profile in this section. This information will be helpful to not only TeamHouse members in your local area, but also members that may be moving or visiting your area. Since the inception of the network, this directory has been used in many instances by members to contact busi-nesses outside their home area.

STEP 6:

Click on “Your Website Functions

Click on “Interests” to enter information that will be helpful to TeamHouse members in a number of ways. The entries in this area can be helpful to those seeking out those will common backgrounds, special knowledge mentors and specific Chapter contacts (Chapter SF4Life Consultant and Officers). The example shown is an abbreviated version — in fact, new interests are being added all the time, so it’s a good idea to check back from time to time.

The information selected in this panel is searchable and so can be used by members that want to communicate with those with similar interests or if they would like to assistance from those who’ve indicated that they are willing to serve as mentors.

If you need help completing these steps or have questions you should contact your Chapter’s TeamHouse Coordinator.
