After the initial rollout of the new My Account pages, there were several bugs found in the system; we have been working on fixing those for a better transition to the new Membership platform. At AAFS, we hope you will find all information associated with your AAFS membership easy to access and navigate. Everything is now in one convenient place, including educational, networking, and professional resources. For a walkthrough of your new account and all its capabilities, please refer to the video located on the AAFS homepage.

Accessing Your Account

To access the new account page, go to https://aafs.org/sign-in in any internet browser (Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge). If this is the first time you are logging in to the new account platform, please use the reset password to set your initial password. Your username is the email address that received this email. The password reset email will come from communications@aafs.org, but if you do not see the email in your inbox, please check your junk/spam folder or with your IT team if you are using a work email. In case you are having any issues with logging in to the new account page and would like some assistance resetting your password, please contact accounts@aafs.org and they will send you a temporary password along with instructions on how to change your password.

Access to the old account page will also be available on the new sign-in page. This link will take you to the old login page, where you will log in with the credential you previously used. You can also click HERE to access the old account page. The old account platform will still be used for applications and certifying eligibility until the new Application year begins in November. Please make any changes to your record in the new account platform, as any changes made to the old account platform that are not related to the application or eligibility processes will be lost.

As we continue to update and improve the new system, feedback is appreciated.  Please submit any questions and comments to accounts@aafs.org.
