How to Manage Your Account

Posted By: Carrie Obry Membership Platform,

One way for you to get the most from your MIBA membership is to market your company via your online company profile page. Start by making sure your company member profile is up-to-date. Our new platform includes Member Compass, your online member portal that allows you to manage your membership information conveniently and efficiently. Updating your profile ensures your ability to stay in good standing with the association and maintain access to member benefits.

Explore Your Member Compass

Once logged into the website, you'll be redirected to your Member Compass. From there, you will see a great deal of information about you and your company. Along with information about your current membership status, you’ll also see several tabs to the left. You may see dynamic information boxes that show the current number of upcoming events you’re registered for, or a box displaying how many outstanding invoices you have. Note: if you are not registered for any upcoming events or do not have outstanding invoices, that corresponding information will not display. You'll also be able to view our most recently published news articles.    

MIBA Member Compass

Access Levels

All logged-in users are able to see their Dashboard with their membership status, transactions, event history, order history, and personal profile information. Along with information about you, depending on your access level, you may see information about your company.

Primary Contacts, Billing Contacts, or users designated with Management Access can update company information, such as contact information, staff, and custom fields. You will not be able to edit the company's name. Contact MIBA for assistance if your Company Name needs to be updated 


This serves as the home page for your Member Compass. You can click this at any time to get back to this main screen. 

Pay Balance and Account History  

These tabs allow you to view and print invoices and receipts, view past transactions, and pay open invoices. Instead of having to call or email, you can find what you need here. Depending on your access level, you may also see additional transactions for others in your company.

My Events 

At the top of this tab are any upcoming events you’re currently registered for. To the right of each event is a link that will allow you to add it to your calendar (iCal, Google, Outlook, and others). Below that section, past events you've attended will be listed. Note, we did not import past event info to this platform, so all event records will be created going forward.

My Orders 

If you have purchased any products from the store, those orders will be shown on the My Orders tab.


To update your personal profile, select the Profile tab. From there, you can add information including social media links, headshots, directory gallery images, ARC preferences or other information you'd like to share. Updating your profile information here will also update what displays on the Member Directory listing.  

Login & Password

Need to update your password or login email address? Easily update your login credentials in this section. 

Payment Methods

Add or edit your saved payment methods here (if applicable).


If you see the word Company or Companies, your account has access to update the Company profile. The Primary Contact, Billing Contact, and anyone on staff with Management Access can update the information. The company logo, contact information, website, address, company overview, etc. can be updated here. Changes made here will be reflected on your Member Directory listing as well.


If you see the Staff tab, your account has access to update the staff at the Company (or Companies) you have been given access to.
