Membership Information

Membership in the MMI site is free, and available to anyone interested in marine metadata interoperability. MMI members are individuals who have registered, and are poised to better take advantage of what this site has to offer.


Registration is quick and easy. From any page in the site, click "Create a new account" in the User Login section. To register, you will need to provide some basic information about yourself, including contact information. Your private information will be kept secure and confidential.

Once you have completed the registration form, you will receive a confirmation email, and you will be given basic access to the site.

As you continue to explore aspects of this web-based community, you might discover various projects focused on your areas of interest. Some of these projects are being addressed by MMI groups (teams of professionals with similar interests), and are open by subscription or invitation only.

Membership - With Privileges

Much of the work done in MMI happens in a team, or group, environment. Group members are encouraged to utilize additional functionality on the site. For a listing of the active groups, see the Community: Committees and Groups page. Notice, you are welcome to join, or request membership in some of these groups.

Changing Your Password

When you are logged in, there should be a section on the left hand side, under the main navigation section, with your User Name as the title. You should see a bullet labeled "My account." On the "My account" page, just under your name, you will see an edit tab. To edit your password, click that tab, enter your new password (twice) and click "Save."

Once you click "Save", your password is reset!
