Membership FAQs

Signing in and managing your AMS profile

How can I sign in to the site?

If you don't know your username or password, a sign in help tool is available. Click "Forgot your password?" below the sign in form. Enter the email address associated with your account or your username (if known) and click "Reset Password". This will send a message to your email address on file with a link to reset your password. If you don't know either your username or email address associated with your account, please contact AMS for assistance.

I requested a password reset email from the site, but I never received it. What happened?

The password reset email is sent to the email address in your member profile. If your email address has changed, you’ll need to check the old email address if you still have access to it. If you can’t access the email, contact us for assistance. If you’re sure the email address on file is correct, please check your spam folder for the password reset email. You should also add as a safe address in your email program, so that messages from AMS are not sent to spam. Once you successfully sign in and have access to your profile, go to Edit Bio under Manage Profile to update your contact information.

I thought I updated my contact information, but it’s still wrong in my member profile. What happened?

You may have entered new contact information during a billing transaction, but doing so does not update your contact details in your member profile. To update your profile details, sign in and then go to Edit Bio under Manage Profile. Please make sure there is a valid address in your profile, and that you have selected either “Home Address” or “Institutional Address” in the "Which address do you prefer to serve as your mailing address?" field. Be sure to click “Save Changes” at the bottom of the page.


Membership Renewal

My membership expired and I want to become a member again. What should I do?

If you know your login, just sign in to the site and follow the prompt to renew. If you don’t see a prompt, go to Membership Info under My Profile. If you don’t know your login or would prefer a paper renewal form, contact AMS for assistance. Please do not register as a new member if you have been a member in the past.
