The Membership Administration Portal (MAP), also known as Office 365, has been designed to assist branch officials in running a branch.
Branch officials have access to membership listings in their area and are given an official RBL email address.
Within this system, there is an online forum for branch officials to communicate with each other and the opportunity to collaborate on any area.
There are groups made based on roles, interests and location with the chance to join any that if of interest to the branch official.
There is also a member’s resources area which continues to grow with useful information to support branch officials.
For security reasons it is not possible for a user to reset an account password through the system.
A password reset can be requested via the Membership Support Officer.
A temporary password will be provided to log into Office 365.
The system will then ask you to update your password. The temporary password will need to be entered as the current password along with your new password.
Your first point of contact should be your Membership Support Officer (MSO) for your area.
Details of who this is can be found by contacting your Area Office or calling the RBL Helpline.
