Membership Extensions During COVID-19

Good News! Interim Memberships
A new six-month interim membership is now available for SGMP supplier and planner members who have been furloughed or laid off. This will give members more time to seek employment in the industry without disrupting their SGMP volunteer commitments.
  1. Interim members may vote.
  2. Interim members may volunteer locally and nationally, including serving on chapter boards, task forces/committees, and national committees. They will not be able to serve on the National Board or the Gilmer Institute of Learning.
  3. Six-month membership fees are: Interim Supplier: $50, Interim Contract Planner: $35, and Interim Government Planner: $20.
  4. Interim members may be able to apply for an additional six months if additional time is needed.
  5. This membership is valid through June 30, 2021.
