As of July 2019, NAfME underwent a significant website update. All current members at this time should have received a postcard, as well as an email with the following notification:

Dear XXX XXX ,

Welcome to the new NAfME membership website portal! We are pleased to launch our new system to better serve you. To see details, visit New NAfME Membership System.

You have received this email because you have a membership or other record in the previous NAfME database. As part of the implementation, and so that your information transfers correctly, you must reset your account password. To do so:

  • Please click here to go online and update your password. This link is unique to your record.
  • Your Username is: XXXXXXX
  • Once you have accessed the site, update your password. You can attempt to use your previous password if you wish – if it fits the parameters, you will be logged in, otherwise, you will receive a message prompting you to change it.
  • When your password has been successfully updated, you will be able to access NAfME's new Portal to join, renew, make purchases, or simply update your account information.

That's it!

The link in the e-mail is good for 180 days. If you do not click it before it expires, you can go directly to to initiate a password change when prompted to login to our site.
