How to Become a Member
- Review the tests we currently accept for membership (on this page).
- If you qualify based on your documented results on one of these tests taken within the indicated time frame, (1) complete and submit the Contact Us form and (2) be sure to attach your documentation (copies of score reports, etc.) to the form. While we are revising and upgrading some of our software, including our forms system, use this form to provide any additional comments or information along with your documentation.
- Wait to hear back from our Membership Officer as to your status. If additional information or documentation is needed, the MO will advise you on what you need to do next. If you have not complied with the Conditions of Use (they’re integrated into the Contact Us form) and have applied using an invalid test or submitted a phony or frivolous application, you may not receive a response.
- If you are accepted as a member, you will receive an email from the Membership Officer advising you of the fact and providing you with additional information and asking you to pay dues to activate your membership.
