  1. Go to the website http://ifmautah.org/catalog.php?cat=13  
  2. The upper top of the website is an option for “Member Area”.  Select this option and login with your Utah Chapter Credentials – This login is different than the IFMA.org site.
  3. Then in the middle of top header is an option “Catalog” which describes the pricing.  Select “View” on the bottom left.
  4. This will then bring up your pricing options.  You could see three different pricing structures.  What you should do is select the “Lowest Price” listed.
  5. This is also the location where you can become a breakfast, lunch or goody bag sponsor for the golf tournament.
  6. If you don’t find the pricing you want then either you’re not a member, your membership is not current or you’re not a renewing Sponsor.
