Communicating with PRIMA
just got a whole lot easier!
In order to better serve its members, PRIMA has upgraded its website. This change will not affect your benefits nor will it drastically change the website.
By now, you should have received a very important letter from PRIMA containing a new membership card and your membership PIN number. This PIN will allow you to create your new username and personal password. This username and password will be needed in order to access the website's Member-Only pages as well as register for the Annual Conference. You will also be able to renew your PRIMA membership online.
If you have not received your new membership card, contact Jessica Konrath at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703.253.1270.
Thanks for your patience and assistance during this exciting transition!
