The American Gem Society is pleased to announce that we are now offering an Advance Renewal Period! After listening to member feedback, we saw an opportunity to help you save time and give you more options on renewing your membership.

This 90-day period allows you to renew your membership prior to your firm's membership expiration date. The Advance Renewal Period allows you to take care of your dues in advance, as well as make any changes to your payment plan.

If you plan to renew in advance, the Advanced Renewal period ends November 30, 2018.

Benefits of renewing in advance:

  • Renew prior to the busiest time of the year—the holidays!
  • Update your firm record and contact information, so that potential clients can reach you
  • Avoid a disruption in your membership benefits

Not ready to renew? No problem! If you choose not to renew your membership during this period, you will be automatically invoiced once your current membership expires.

If you are ready to renew today, please contact us at 866.805.6500, and select option 3.

Thank you for your continued support of the American Gem Society! Your membership signifies to your customers your commitment to consumer protection, professional credentials, the highest standard of business practices, and excellence.
