Membership Reinstatement

Dues span a one-year period, beginning the date that PINA accepts you as a member. If your membership lapses, your benefits end and you will be removed from PINA’s website listings, if any, after a 30-day grace period. Upon payment of dues, you will be reinstated.
Most PINA members are set up with automatic annual renewal.

If your membership has lapsed due to nonpayment, go to your Member Portal to renew your membership.

If you do not have a log-in because you have never registered on the PINA website, please use our Become a Member page as if you are a new member. This applies to all member types.

If you need any other assistance with your membership, please use the Contact form to get in touch with our administrator.
