Any person of good repute who subscribes to the objectives and purposes of the Guild is welcome to membership in the PGI.
Note on joining for 2019:
The last date to join or renew for 2019 was August 16, 2019. Please use the 2020 membership or renewal form and your membership will be for the 2020 calendar year. The first Bulletin of that membership year is generally mailed in December or January. You may, if they are available, purchase back issues of 2019 Bulletins.
Memberships extend from January 1 through December 31. Currently there are three levels of membership:
|Classification||New||Renewal (through 1/31)|
New members may join the Guild at any time of the year, and they receive the current year’s Bulletins (if they are available), a membership wallet card, and a sew-on PGI patch.
All memberships (except Lifetime) are for a period of one calendar year, beginning on January 1st and ending on December 31st of the same year. This is true regardless of when during the year you join the Guild, renew your membership, or rejoin the Guild after your membership has lapsed.
If you join after the PGI Convention, your membership is for the following calendar year and the first Bulletin of that membership year is generally mailed in December or January. You may, if they are available, purchase current year Bulletin issues.
All memberships expire on December 31st, which is also the due date for membership renewal. A grace period of one month – through January 31st of the new year, is granted for renewal.
Renewals received after 31 January will at the full New Member rate. Removal of non-renewed subscribers from the PGI Mailing List shall be accomplished on February 1st or as shortly thereafter as practicable.
