How to obtain a FIGMAS account

Post by Julien » Sat Jul 22, 2017 6:18 am

When registering with FIGMAS through either the Microanalytical Society (MAS) or the Microscopy Society of America (MSA), an account on the FIGMAS website is NOT created automatically. An administrator (committee member or webmaster) must create an account for you.

MAS and MSA regularly send us a list of newly registered members, usually once or twice a year. We will do our best to provide you with an account as soon as we receive confirmation of your subscription. If you want an account ASAP, or if we have missed your registration, we kindly suggest that you contact a committee member with proof of registration so we can create an account for you (see

If you were a member in the past and do not renew your annual membership, your FIGMAS account will still remain active and marked as "unpaid". Paid membership is required for most other FIGMAS activities (participation in round robins, online submission of new standard information, participation in the business meeting, eligibility for committee positions, etc.).

For the committee,
Julien Allaz
