need some help to to that

What have you tried?

First add in members table a field, lets named this field "role", and make it of type int.
In this field put the level acces of the user.
After that your SELECT can be changed like this:

SELECT password, role FROM members WHERE username = :username AND active="Yes"

Finally you can put the role extracted in session

$_SESSION['role'] = $row['role'];
