How do you know if your a member? 6 Replies

A few weeks back I joined the AGS and I've not heard a word from them, if I'm a member and if I will receive their magazine. Do they let you know and if they do when? thanks

The Show-Me Gourd Society website has experienced a problem with our website.  Our website people have been working diligently to get a new one up and running.  We had to change domains, and you can't yet google it, so you'll have to use this link and bookmark it for yourselves. http://showmegourdsociety.org  Thanks, Suzy Meelhuysen

I became an AGS member a year ago and enjoy the magazine a great deal. Very well worth the dues. I had my first winning gourd shown in the magazine. I'm a member of the Wisconsin Gourd Society and entered last years competition. Oh what fun for a novice! My profile picture is my winning gourd.

I would just like to say that the AGS magazine alone makes AGS worth joining, it is so well done, nice photos, lots of useful information on gourding. So if you are not a member you really should join, if for no other reason that to get the magazine, it’s also a great way to support your interest in gourding.

I've been a AGS member for years.  Why can't I add it to my groups?
