To determine if you will receive $65 member pricing, the system uses the exact first name, last name, member number and email address that is on the NWIR member list. If you enter your first and last name but use a personal email, the system will not provide member pricing if the member list has your work email (or vice versa). Same thing if you enter as your name Cindy, but you are listed has Cynthia. It must be an exact match in all 4 fields.
NWIR members were sent an email on December 12, 2019 with their member number and you can also see your member number on the association management system at https://nwir.memberclicks.net/member-landing-page
