Membership Renewal Resources

We’d like to thank you for your continued support throughout the year! Your membership made it possible for us to connect at Conclave in Oklahoma City, present our 2nd annual virtual conference, Confluence, and deliver meaningful benefits and education to the AGS community.

You’ll find everything you need to complete your membership renewal on this page. If you have questions, please contact us at membership@ags.org or 866.805.6500, option 3.

The American Gem Society offers members the option to renew their membership dues automatically each year. This convenience allows you uninterrupted access to all your AGS member benefits.


Members must enroll at least ten (10) business days before their current membership expires. For example, if membership expires 11/30/2022, the last day to enroll is 11/21/2022.

Already enrolled and need to update your payment method? Visit ags.org/autorenewupdate and input your changes at least ten (10) business days before your scheduled renewal.

You may opt out of Automatic Membership Dues Renewal at any time by completing this form.

The Advance Renewal Period enables you to renew your firm membership prior to your expiration date and make any changes to your current payment plan.

If you choose not to renew your membership during this period, you will be automatically invoiced once your current membership expires. Your membership will be renewed once dues are paid in full, or the first payment of an installment plan is paid in full.


If you are enrolled in an installment plan or outside of the Advance Renewal Period and are ready to renew today, please contact us at membership@ags.org or 866.805.6500, option 3.

If you do not enroll in Automatic Membership Dues Renewal or renew during the Advance Renewal Period, you will be automatically invoiced once your current membership expires. Your membership will be renewed once dues are paid in full or the first payment of an installment plan is paid in full.

Individual Member Dues

Affiliate, Patron, Legacy, Emeritus, and Student Associate members are automatically invoiced once your current membership expires and renewed once dues are paid in full.

If individual membership is not renewed within the 62-day grace period, the individual member may be resigned.

Recertification Fees

Titleholders and designees attached to member firms are billed an annual recertification fee during the recertification period. Invoices are billed to the firm at the launch of the period.

This ensures your firm only supports titleholders and designees who are qualified to carry their credentials upon completing their recertification exam.

If payment for the recertification fee invoice is not received within the 62-day grace period, the individual’s title or designation may be revoked.

Please find below the latest Membership Dues Terms and Conditions (“Terms”). Understanding these Terms is important because, as a member, you are acknowledging and agreeing to these Terms. If you have any questions, please contact us at membership@ags.org or 866.805.6500, option 3.

If you can’t remember your password, or it is incorrect, click the “forgot password” button, and a link will be sent to the email address on file.

If you cannot retrieve your login credentials after trying the method above, please contact us at membership@ags.org or 866.805.6500, option 3.

If you missed the deadline for your renewal, automatic renewal will be active for your next scheduled renewal. For example, if your membership expires on 11/30/2022 and you missed the enrollment deadline of 11/25/2022, you will be required to submit payment for your invoice dated 12/1/2022. On your next renewal, 12/1/2023, your membership dues will be automatically processed using the payment information filed from your 12/1/2022 invoice payment. Your enrollment confirmation will specify which renewal period your automatic renewal starts.

You will receive an email with notice that your payment method is expiring before your next payment is due. If your payment method declines, you will also receive an email notification. To update your payment method, log in to your firm profile and select your current installment plan invoice, or contact accounting@ags.org or 866.805.6500, option 6.
