Do I have to be a member of a state Affiliate in order to become a member of NCPG?
Membership in a State Affiliate Council is not required to join the National Council.
When can I start my membership?
Your membership can start at any time and will run twelve months from the date we receive your application.
When will my membership need to be renewed?
We will send you a notice by email about three months before the due date for renewal.
Why should I pay close attention to renewing my membership?
Members are very important to NCPG and we count on your support to help us implement our important work.
Also, one of the criteria for anyone who wants to become or remain eligible to be nominated for a seat on the Board of Directors is that they must maintain an active, paid-up membership for a minimum of 12 months in the 36 months before the date of nomination. If your membership lapses, the one-year ‘clock’ starts over again when the membership is renewed.
And, last but not at all least, your membership entitles you to significant discounts, such as on the registration fee to our annual national conference and the ICGC Counselor certification exam. Keep your membership current in order to take advantage of these discounts and the rest of your benefits!
How long will it take for me to receive my certificate?
Please allow up to (2) weeks for processing your application. If you do not receive your certificate in about that time, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is a Joint Individual Member?
A Joint Individual Member is someone who is a member of their state’s Affiliate council as well as a member of the National Council on Problem Gambling, and receives membership benefits from both organizations at significant savings. In order to join as an Affiliate Member, your state must have an Affiliate Council with a membership program. To check, view our state map. The states in bold have Affiliates and contact information is provided on the same page. Please contact the Affiliate to ask about their membership program.
How do I become a Joint Individual Member?
If your state has an Affiliate, please contact them and ask how to become a member of their council first. Then they will assist you with the next step of becoming a Joint Member; usually you will make one payment to the Affiliate Council but complete two applications – one for Affiliate membership and one for National membership – or a joint membership form.
What if my state doesn't have an Affiliate Council or my state's Affiliate Council doesn't have a membership program?
Then we will be happy to welcome you as an Individual Member of the National Council! Membership in an Affiliate Council is not required to join the National Council.
When will my Joint membership need to be renewed?
Check with your state Affiliate Council regarding membership renewal policies for the Affiliate. For the National Council, your membership will run twelve months from the date we receive your application and payment from the Affiliate Council. Thereafter, your renewal will be due at the same time each year and your membership term will be for the same twelve-month period, even if we receive payment before or after the actual due date. This system helps members maintain your eligibility for seats on our Board because your membership has a three-month grace period before it lapses.
If my Joint Membership expires, how do I renew?
Since your Joint Membership is through your state Affiliate Council, you must renew through them and in turn, they will process your renewal dues for the National Council. Memberships that have lapsed for more than three months will have a new start date and the one-year ‘clock’ for eligibility will start over as well.
