Membership Q & A

Have trouble when you try to login to iibamsp.org?
 
If you are a member, but cannot login as a member, try to login as a nonmember.  If your Chapter membership has expired, your record is automatically moved to the nonmember roster.  
 
Does it seem like your Chapter membership is expiring more often than once a year?
 
That could be true if your International IIBA and Chapter memberships are not aligned to expire in the same month.  The International expiry date is the driver in the dual membership relationship. Please contact membership@iibamsp.org to help you get your dates aligned.  Alignment of your dates will be helpful for next year when management of these two memberships will be simplified and streamlined.
