Once you have logged into your account, left click the link "Personal Info" located to the right of your name in the upper right corner of the page.  Click the button "Password" on the next page.  This will bring up a page that will allow you to enter your old password as well as enter a new one.  Remember to enter your new password a second time in the "confirm password" box.
