How do I log in?

Login instructions will differ depending on your relationship with Local 47.



To access your existing online member account, you will need to use our brand-new login system, which replaces the previous WebID system. Now you will be able to create your own username instead of having to use a pre-assigned WebID, as well as access many additional features in your new profile. Here’s how to get started:

1. Navigate to the “Reset Password” page

2. Input your email address (the same one on file with Local 47), last 4 digits of your SSN, legal first name, and legal last name.

3. You will receive a reset email in your inbox; follow the reset link in that email and reset your password. Please write this down in a safe place. The email message will also provide you with your username (which you may change once you log in).



Watch a step-by-step video tutorial on how to access your online account.

Important Note: If you already have an account with Local 47 but do not have a current email on file, you will not be able to log in without staff assistance. If you need to add a new, or update an old, email address, please send a message to directory@afm47.org, and a staff member will reach out with you to confirm your ability to log in.



1. To create a new account, navigate to the “Sign Up” page

I’m worried about my personal information being in the cloud. Is Ensemble 2.0 (E2) secure?

Ensemble 2.0 is hosted on Microsoft’s Azure platform. The Azure platform implements various security measures to ensure the safety of user data and operations. This includes encryption of data at rest and in transit, multi-factor authentication, network security groups, identity and access management controls, regular security updates and patches, compliance certifications, and advanced threat detection systems. Additionally, Microsoft invests heavily in cybersecurity research and employs a dedicated team of experts to continually monitor and enhance the platform's security posture. This platform is far safer and more secure than the older, in-house servers that Local 47 has used for many years.

How do I report technical issues?

Send an email noting all pertinent information (nature of issue, device and OS used, any error message received, etc.) to E2Help@afm47.org.
