Membership

    A: Many of them are exactly alike except for the title, which is used in the Forum to identify the member's job classification and also on the invoice receipt. More on that below.* 

    The Golf Course Superintendent, Sales Representative, Allied Affiliate,  and Sports Turf Manager membership categories, and the Job Listings and Used Equipment Listings packages, all have identical privileges and access on the site:

    • 3 login accounts (typically supt, asst and equipment tech, although do with them as you please as long as they are all employees of your course, club or company)
    • Forum access for all
    • unlimited free job listings
    • unlimited used equipment listings, but limited to 10 active listings at one time.
    • Eligibility for our Members' Trips and Beer & Pretzels Gala at GIS.
    • All are $195 per year

    The Assistant Superintendent and Equipment Technician/Manager categories are identical except for title. These normally take one of the login accounts of the full memberships above, but in the case of an interested assistant or mechanic who can't convince the boss to sign up, this is for them.

    • One login account with Forum access
    • No free job or used equipment listings -- as these benefit the club or course, who should really sign up at the regular level for these benefits.
    • Eligibility for our Members' Trips and Beer & Pretzels Gala at GIS.
    • $100 per year. Again, free with a regular GCS account.

    The Distributor/Dealer category is designed for those who want more than three login accounts (typically up to ten) for their sales force and/or more than ten used equipment listings to be active at any one time. This would also include smaller manufacturers with limited needs.

    • up to ten login accounts
    • Forum access for all
    • unlimited free job listings
    • unlimited used equipment listings, but limited to 25 active listings at one time.
    • Eligibility for our Members' Trips and Beer & Pretzels Gala at GIS.
    • $495 per year

    The Enhanced Used Equipment Dealer category has the above benefits along with

    • unlimited used equipment listings live at one time
    • banner ad in our Friday morning TurfNet This Week e-newsletter
    • $1495/year

    The Manufacturer category is the same as the Distributor/Dealer category with the addition of

    • as many login accounts as you reasonably need
    • 125x125px banner rotation in our main page Featured Affiliate grid
    • $995/year

    The Manufacturer Enhanced category is the same as above with the addition of

    • 170x125 Featured Product banner rotated on the main page and throughout the site
    • $1495/year

    * The Job and Used Equipment Listings Package categories are in response to requests for a receipt that says something other than "membership" or "dues", which are budget line items fairly heavily scrutinized within many organizations. Monies may be available to buy job listings or used equipment classifieds, and these packages are an economical way to do that. You just get other benefits included as well. 😎

    A: Your assistant(s) first need(s) to register for a guest/limited account, if he or she hasn't already. 

    Then, making sure you have signed in, click Account on the right side of the menu (might be under More>), then My Details, then Alternative Contacts. You can add him or her there. 
     
    Be sure to select Golf Course Superintendent under Purchases so he has the same privileges that you do.
