Website Accounts for CMS Members

General Information

The CMS offers numerous electronic services to CMS members.

To maintain access to these electronic services, renewals for the subsequent year must be received at the Executive Office by March 31.

Additional electronic services for all members are planned for the future.

Activating your Website Account

To access the various services, members are required to use an ID number and password. New members receive a "CMS ID number" and a "Temporary Password" from the CMS Executive Office.

This CMS ID number is a 6-digit number which uniquely identifies members in the CMS database. This number will not change and should be used in all subsequent correspondence with the Executive Office.

The Temporary Password is an 8-digit randomized alphanumeric string issued to each member and subscriber as part of their renewal or application. The Temporary Password can only be used for the initial account activation.

A member logging into a restricted area of the website for the first time must activate their CMS website account by entering the "CMS ID" and the "Temporary Password". He/she will then be required to choose their own "Website Username" and "Website Password". The system will ensure that the chosen username is unique. On subsequent logins, the member will be able to enter using this username and password.

What if I forget or lose my username or password?

Contact, requesting that your website account be "reset". Once the account has been reset, you will be provided with a temporary password. Then you can re-activate your account using your CMS ID and the temporary password.
