Membership FAQs

How do I join or renew my TAG Membership?

Become a TAG Member and manage your membership status via our online membership system.

What types of TAG memberships are available?

There are several TAG membership levels to suit you and/or your business: Student, Individual, Business (Any Number of Employees), and Partner (Non-Profit Organizations).

We also offer Gratis Individual and Business Memberships via various TAG programs, including TAG Community Partners, and TAG Metallic Membership benefits. Contact us for more details regarding gratis membership.

Since my company is a TAG Business Member, does that mean that I am also a TAG Member?

No. However, beginning in 2021, we offer TAG Gratis Memberships included in TAG Metallic Membership benefits. If your organization is a TAG Metallic Member, please contact us or your organization’s point of contact to establish your membership. Refer to our Sponsorship page for more details. Otherwise, please apply for your own Student or Individual Membership. In any circumstance, please register for the appropriate TAG Membership.

What are the requirements to be a TAG Student Member?

TAG offers a discount for student members for current full-time students of any accredited institution of higher education. Beginning in 2021, access to all TAG events and programs is included in TAG Student Membership. (Limited to availability.)

My business is a TAG Sponsor and we have TAG Memberships included in our sponsorship. How do I register as a TAG Gratis Individual Member?

Arrangements will be made with your organization’s point of contact. Don’t know who that is? Feel free to contact us to determine. Otherwise hold tight — we will be launching onboarding processes to align with these new benefits.
