Database Role Members

Nate Johnson has a quick demo showing how to add users to database roles:

The “old” method involves calling system stored-procedures, sp_addrolemember and sp_droprolemember, in which you pass the role-name and username.  The “new” method, supported starting with SQL 2012, is to use the command-phrases ALTER ROLE [role] ADD MEMBER [user], and ALTER ROLE [role] DROP MEMBER [user].

Nate shows both methods, so check it out.
