IFMA National Login Access to Change

Some members have let IFMA know that the log in process for the Online Community and other IFMA-related sites isn't meeting expectations.

In order to make access as smooth as possible, over the next several months IFMA will implement a new log in process across its websites.

The first roll out will be on IFMA’s Online Community, community.ifma.org.

Beginning on Wednesday, April 29, community.ifma.org will be down for maintenance starting at 3 p.m. CDT.

The upgraded site will be available on Thursday, April 30 and will include:

  • Ability to view from mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets
  • Ability to log in using email, Facebook, Twitter, Google and/or LinkedIn accounts

IMPORTANT: After April 30 all members will need to complete a one-time registration with the new log in tool to access content and receive updates from IFMA’s Online Community.


  1. After April 30, register at community.ifma.org using the email associated with your My IFMA account so that the system recognizes you as a member.
  2. A verification email from login@ifma.org will be sent to the address provided.
  3. Open the verification email and follow instructions to complete the registration.

If you don’t see the verification email, check your spam folder and add login@ifma.org to your trusted sender list.

We’ll keep you posted as the new log in process is added across other IFMA websites. Your current login credentials will continue to function on sites that have not yet been updated. Once you complete registration, your new login information will carry over to each site as it is upgraded.

Once all upgrades are complete, members will have one set of login credentials that works for all IFMA sites and the option to log in using social media.
