Online Membership Renewal Is Now Available!

At last, you can now renew your 2024 PVGRC membership online! At last, you can now renew your 2024 PVGRC membership online! Please follow the instructions below to do so. Because we are on a new website, some things have changed from previous years, we hope for the better. We will continue to use PayPal for payment processing (the preferred way of paying), and you will still have the option of filling out all required information and then mailing a check to the treasurer for your payment. If you encounter any problems, or if you have suggestions for how to improve the process, please contact webmaster@pvgrc.org.

  1. You must be logged into your account on PVGRC.ORG in order to renew your membership online. Our new system for managing memberships uses somewhat different terminology. You have a membership in PVGRC, and to renew, you will be purchasing a subscription for your 2024 membership. Next year, you will purchase a subscription for your 2025 membership, etc. If you need assistance in logging in, please contact webmaster@pvgrc.org or read our email message titled “PVGRC Members Can Now Log Into PVGRC.ORG” and dated 1/23/2024 at 5:43 p.m.
  2. Once logged in, got to the Members Only dropdown menu and select Membership Renewal. (Note: the next option below that one on the menu is “2024 Membership Renewal Form”. Only select this if you want to view or download the offline printable form.)
  3. By selecting Membership Renewal, you’ll be taken to a page that discusses renewal, including the Associate Member option. On that page, for online renewal, click the “Renew Membership Online” button on the bottom to the lower right (at the bottom on mobile devices).
  4.  You will then be taken to a “Select Your Membership Type for 2024” page. Click on the button corresponding to the type of membership you wish to renew for 2024. 
  5. After selecting your membership type, you will be taken to your personalized renewal page. It will contain all of the information that is currently stored in your profile on PVGRC.ORG. Please review ALL of it carefully, and complete any information that is missing, including your country.
  6. Please note that the Interests and Skills sections are expanded from previous years in order that we can better capture the many and diverse interests and abilities of our club members. You must also check the Agrees box on the Code of Ethics Agreement item. The Code of Ethics is available on the About PVGRC dropdown menu.
  7. At the bottom, select either the “Check or Cash Payment” option or the “Pay via Credit Card using PayPal” option, then click “Renew This Membership. You’ll be taken to a page that summarizes your amount and payment method. At the bottom, click “Submit”. 
  8. If you are paying via credit card, you will then be transferred to PayPal. You do not need to have a PayPal account in order to pay via them. If you have a PayPal account, you may be taken directly to your account, from which you can finalize your transaction. If you do not have a PayPal account, PayPal is going to encourage you to get one, but you do NOT need to! Select instead the options to check out as a Guest!
  9. Once you have completed your payment with PayPal, PayPal should send you back to PVGRC.ORG, where you should see a page indicating that your subscription for your 2024 membership has been purchased. You’re done!

Once you have completed the renewal process, you can check out your profile on the Members Only menu. Any changes or corrections that you made during the renewal should already be shown in your profile, as well as in your listing in the Online Directory.

If you experience any difficulties along the way, or are not sure if your transaction went through, please send an email to webmaster@pvgrc.org.
