Using iMIS on www.fra.org 2/2007
What is iMIS? iMIS is the very extensive database system in which FRA invested in order to bring membership management in-house. iMIS allows FRA staff to efficiently manage member records and allows one database to be used for magazine mailings, billing, direct mail communication, e-mail communication, fundraising and committee management, as a few examples. Members can access their records directly in iMIS through a portal in www.fra.org. Branch and Regional officers can access members’ records directly through the site as well, Secretaries can update the records. The following is a brief overview.
Login to Your Record! Go to www.fra.org and enter your username and password – click “enter” key on keyboard or the arrows next to username. If you haven’t ever logged in: Username: Membership number (must have 9 digits – life members add 2 zeros)Password: first initial first name followed by last nameExample: Username: 009002452 (this is an example of a life member)Password: rwashington
Go to MY FRA Go to “My FRA” (top navigation bar) and you will see your record. Click “Activities” to see your dues payments or track future donations Click “Edit” to make any changes to address, phone, e-mail, etc. Click “Security” to change your username and / or your password. NOTE: CHANGE USERNAME / PASSWORD ASAP!!!
Edit your Information Click “Edit” to make any changes to address, phone, e-mail, etc. When you click “Edit” you’ll be able to subscribe to NewsBytes, change your name, address, phone number, birth date, e-mail address... When you’re finished, click “submit.” The change is immediately made in iMIS.
Security Change When you click “Security” to change your username and password, you will see your last name and member number in one line. You can keep this or change it. This is how the system distinguishes you from other people with your same last name. Changing your username and password is recommended for security purposes.
