Although GNI offers online membership application for new and renewing members, the information that is electronically submitted by you is NOT processed in real time. The information is held in an encrypted file until the Business Office has a chance to charge your credit card, create, and activate your online profile. When that process has been completed, you will be notified via e-mail of your Username and a link to either Create or reset your Password. There will be a delay between the time you submit your application and the time that you will gain access to your profile. This period is usually no more than a few days. Oftentimes, memberships are processed the same day. Thank you for your patience.
