Please email rmaevents@rmahq.org or reference the Swapcard FAQ page here.  

 

Q: I did not receive the welcome email from Swapcard to access the conference application? 

The login email or the "magic link" email is an automated email that is sent to you once your registration information is synced with the conference application. This email is sent from noreply@swapcard.com and if you do not see it in your inbox, it most likely could be in your spam folder or might be blocked by your company's firewall if you are using your work email address. 

 

Q: I have downloaded the conference application, but it says that my magic link has expired? 

The magic link email sent directly to your inbox during the weeks prior to the event, has a security token personalized for your email address which expires once you have clicked on the link one time. If the link is left idle, it will expire after 48-hrs, and a new link will need to be requested. If you think your magic link may have expired, please request for a new one at the login page or reaching out to rmaevents@rmahq.org.
