Membership

  • I need to add a member to my agency membership, how do I do that?
    Please submit the Additional Member Application form to membercare@nigp.org with a form of payment.

  • I need to remove and add a member at the same time, how do I do that?
    If you are within your membership renewal timeframe, this can be done directly online by having the listed agency representative login to their profile and make the change to the listed agency roster. The change will not save, unless the membership is renewed at the same time. If you are outside your renewal time frame, please have the listed agency representative send an email to membercare@nigp.org requesting the swap. Please be sure to include why the individual is being removed (left agency, retired, or not covered), and to include all the contact information for the new member.

    The listed agency representative who is named on the notice can login to their NIGP profile and process the renewal invoice online with a credit card, or the invoice can be scanned and emailed to membercare@nigp.org  with a copy of a purchase order. If paying by check, please mail the check to: NIGP, 2411 Dulles Corner Park, Suite 350, Herndon, VA 20171.
