NASGA MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION
NASGA members agree that they will leave sea glass in its natural state and not create or sell any imitation sea glass in person or online. Sea glass and beach glass must not be altered in any way — by grinding, acid etching, sand blasting, tumbling, or any other means — to artificially replicate genuine sea glass. Furthermore, member will not use any techniques that alter the size, shape, color, or patina of genuine sea glass.
Memberships will be reviewed prior to acceptance. We will contact you 2-4 weeks after submission of your application to confirm your acceptance.
Upon approval of NASGA membership you will be invoiced for your member dues via PayPal. The annual fee is payable upon acceptance. You will be invoiced each year in January thereafter unless you have notified us in writing of membership cancellation at least two months prior to renewal. We accept PayPal, Major Credit Cards, Debit Cards, and e-check for payment.
Once member dues are paid, you may begin advertising your NASGA membership in your promotional and marketing materials. Please email product images, a short bio, and a link to your website for our NASGA Members page.
After acceptance you can apply to be a vendor at the North American Sea Glass Festival.
