Thank you all for your patience and understanding during the last week while the MyIFE portal was being updated. After months of development, configuration and testing we can finally say welcome to our membership online applications portal option. We’re delighted to say that the cutover went well and OMAP is now up and running! A more user friendly journey and environmentally friendly way of applying for your membership now exists with the online application process.
Applying online is not just for new members (remember to tell your friends and colleagues) either, with regrades now also available to do online for all current members. With the launch of OMAP we will be phasing out paper applications for all UK based applicants and international members who have or wish to have a direct relationship with the IFE. Don’t worry if you are in the middle of a paper application as we will continue to accept these for a short period of time. International applicants should apply through their local branch as there is no change to the way your international branch submission process currently operates and you can receive the additional benefits and personalised service that they offer.
If you’re not planning on regrading, don’t worry, there’s still plenty for you to get excited about on the new portal. You can still do all of the things you have previously enjoyed plus more – pay for your subscriptions online, check your membership, read the latest IFP, get involved in consultations or join one of our SIGs and all with the style and grace of our new design. The layout, look and feel now makes it easier than ever to navigate and the power is in your hands when it comes to what you receive too. So, if you’re not receiving your IFP, or you want to hear more about what the IFE are doing, you can let us know through the ‘My preferences’ area.
We’re so pleased with OMAP and we hope that you enjoy it too. Whether you are a member, know someone who wants to be, or are looking to upgrade your membership, it really is easier than ever to get it done. Head on over and take a look.
