How does the Application process work?

Contact the Regional Office you are joining if you have any questions.

  • Your application will be submitted to the appropriate Regional Membership Committees and reviewed by the Regional Membership Committee and the New York Membership Committee. New York is the headquarter office of FGI. Applications from NY will be reviewed only by the New York Membership Committee.
  • Both committees meet once monthly to review membership applications. The review process may take more than 30 days.
  • When your application is approved, you will be mailed a welcome packet and contacted by the Membership Committee and refund cannot be made. If your application is not approved, you will be contacted by the Membership Committee and your fees are reimbursed in total.
  • FGI membership becomes effective upon the application approval and receipt of the one-time initiation fee and membership dues.
