Membership Guidelines

Anyone of good repute that subscribes to the objectives and purposes of the Guild is welcome to join. Membership runs the calendar year from January 1st through December 31st. You may apply to join anytime during the year. When you join, you'll receive a letter welcoming you to the Guild, a PGI membership card and a PGI patch. Full, Junior and Lifetime members will also receive the PGI Bulletin along with all available back issues for the current year and the PGI Calendar. The PGI Bulletin contains Guild news, technical articles, and stories of interest to pyrotechnic hobbyists and professionals and advertising from our supporters. Members are also eligible to attend the PGI Convention in early August.
