Some pages of FMCA.com, mainly those that involve member records or transaction processes, will be down for maintenance from June 27 to July 7. But, the FMCA Motorhome Forums site – http://community.fmca.com/index -- will remain accessible. However, because the Forums uses a single-sign-on method that bridges from FMCA.com to the Forums site, users might not be able to sign in during this time. At this point, we can’t say for certain how the downtime will affect users who remain signed in from a previous session. We suggest:
If you are not signed in to FMCA.com, sign in before June 27.
Bookmark the Forums site -- http://community.fmca.com/index.
When you leave the site, do NOT sign out.
FMCA.com will not be fully functional, so you will not be able to get to the Forums from there. Instead, use the bookmark or enter the http://community.fmca.com/index URL in your browser address bar to go to the site.
In the best-case scenario, the site will “remember” you from the previous browser session and you will be signed in and can post, etc. The purpose of the downtime is to allow time for the implementation of a new membership management and customer relations software system. It will affect all departments at the national office, and how we manage the daily business of the association. We are replacing an entire accounting system and undergoing a software conversion, simultaneously. To make sure transactions from the old accounting system reconcile with the new, we must suspend new orders from going in to the system. We apologize for this temporary shutdown. Behind the scenes, FMCA will be more of a well-oiled – and modern -- machine, as a result.
