We’d like to thank you for your continued support this past year! Your membership made it possible for us to launch a new virtual conference, Confluence, reunite at Conclave last fall, and continue to deliver meaningful benefits and education to the AGS community.
On this page, you’ll find everything you need to complete your membership renewal. If you have questions, please contact us at email@example.com 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 seven (7) calendar days before their current membership expires. For example, if membership expires 11/30/2021, the last day to enroll is 11/23/2021.
Already enrolled and need to update your payment method? Visit ags.org/autorenewupdate and input your changes at least three business days before your scheduled renewal.
You may opt-out of the Automatic Dues Renewal Program at any time by completing this form.
The Advance Renewal Period enables you to renew your firm membership prior to your expiration date as well as 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.
Membership with the American Gem Society is automatically invoiced upon expiration and renewed once dues payment is fulfilled.
Dues payment is fulfilled when the invoice is paid in full, or the first installment payment is received in full.
Individual Member Dues
Affiliate, Patron, Legacy, and Emeritus designation members are automatically invoiced upon expiration and renewed once dues payment is fulfilled. If individual membership is not renewed within the 60-day grace period, the individual member may be resigned, and designation revoked.
As of 2021, titleholders and designees attached to member firms are billed an annual recertification fee upon completing the annual recertification exam. Fees are billed during the recertification exam period.
These fees replace the dues for these individuals traditionally billed during the renewal 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 60-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 or call 866.805.6500, option 3.

No, you are not required to renew your membership today. The Advance Renewal Period is made available to you in the event you would like to set up your renewal for 2022 and take care of your dues in advance, as well as make any changes to your payment plan.
The Advance Renewal Period ends upon membership expiration. If you choose not to renew your membership during the Advance Renewal Period, you will be automatically invoiced for renewal the day after your membership expires.
Your membership renewal is not complete until your dues are paid in full or the first payment is made in full if enrolled in an installment plan. Again, you can choose to do this before the end of the year or when you are invoiced upon membership expiration.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 866.805.6500, option 3.
Enroll by clicking the button below at least seven (7) calendar days before your current membership expires. For example, if your membership expires 11/30/2021, the last day to enroll is 11/23/2021.

We use CardConnect, part of the FirstData/Fiserv family, our payment processor. Every transaction that is processed is protected at the point-of-interaction by CardSecure, their patented data encryption and tokenization solution that transfers incoming credit card data to a secure vault, encrypts it, and assigns it a token.
You may opt-out of the Automatic Dues Renewal Program at any time by completing this form. If you forgot to opt-out before your renewal is processed, please contact us or call 866.805.6500, option 3 for support.
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 11/30/2021 and you missed the enrollment deadline of 11/23/2021, you will be required to submit payment for your invoice dated 12/1/2021. On your next renewal, 12/1/2022, your membership dues will be automatically processed using the payment information filed from your 12/1/2021 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 email@example.com or 866.805.6500, option 6.
Contact us or call 866.805.6500, option 3, and we will work within our means to accommodate your request.
