JONAS Member Portal – “How To” Guide

Welcome to JONAS!

As you are aware, BLYC has transitioned to a new management system – JONAS.  This system integrates the Bar & Restaurant operation, membership, rentals, online reservations and the member directory.  Our communications team has developed the following tutorial to help guide you through the basics of registering for and using this new system.  

NOTES:

  • The online payment system is active
  • The online reservations feature will “go live” starting with dining & events January 1, 2023.  Typically, the ability to make reservations for an event or dining will open up three weeks prior.
  • We hope to integrate the membership directory into the Member Portal in the near future

JONAS Member Portal - Registration

When you click on “Member Portal” in the Membership drop-down menu on our website, you will be taken to the following page.

The first time you use the portal, you will need to register by clicking on the Membership Registration link on the bottom right.

You will then be redirected to the following screen.

Enter the requested information and then click on “Validate.”  The information entered must exactly match that on your printed statement from the Club.  Note: Membership Numbers are now 5-digit numbers, instead of the 3-digit numbers in our old system.  In most cases, simply add two zeroes in front of your “old” membership number.

You will be guided through online prompts to complete the registration process and will receive a confirmation email once when you have successfully activated your account online.

JONAS Member Portal - Statements & Payment

Most everything you will access in the portal is under the “Member Central” drop down menu located at the top of the page.  

When you select “Statements,” the following screen will appear.  Here, you can view your balances and pay your bill online.

Clicking on the statement date, you can see all charges on your account – paid and charged – and detail for each of those transactions.

To make a payment online, simply click on the “Pay Now” link in the upper right.

The “Member Payments” screen will open in a new tab.

Here, using either a Credit Card, Debit Card, or electronic bank withdrawl, you can pay on your account.

JONAS Member Portal - Calendar & Reservations

To access the Club Calendar and new reservation system, select “Calendar” from the “Member Central” dropdown menu.

You can navigate the calendar by selecting the month in the top center of the calendar.  Some items listed are informational only – i.e., we are not accepting reservations for these events or, in rare cases, taking reservations outside of the JONAS system. All events through December 31st are currently informational only. Until implementation is complete, we will continue taking reservations through the legacy system we’ve been using.

To get more information on an event, and/or to make a reservation, simply click on that event.

Once on the event page, you will find information regarding entertainment, special instructions, and other information about the event.

Currently, reservations for dining & events will go live approximately three weeks prior to the event.  If reservations are open, click on the “Register” link in the upper right.   If they are not yet open, this area will inform you of the date and time reservations will open.

Once you click on “Register” you will see the following screen.

On this page, you will select the number of members (member, spouse, non-adult children) who will be attending as well as the number of guests you will bring.  (Note: some events are open to members only)

Put any additional requests – dietary needs, etc. – in the Notes box and then click “Continue.”  Note – please do not put seating time or location requests in this area.  These will be requested later in the reservation process.

Seating Times and Location:

On the next page, you will select your preferred seating time and preferred seating location.

Please Note: Seating times & locations are not guaranteed. The staff will make every effort to accommodate your request.  Only seating locations listed are available for the dates specified.  If your time is not available, the staff will contact you at the phone number associated with your member record
