|Dues Payment Information|
Welcome to your Producers Guild online dues payment system!
Over the years, many members have requested the ability to pay their dues online, and we’re happy (finally!) to be able to offer this useful functionality. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the system, and to move towards adopting online dues payment as your "default” option—it’s more convenient for you, and the automation allows the PGA staff to focus on more important things, like providing programs and benefits for the members.
Because of the online bill-pay functionality, we will no longer be sending paper billing statements to our members; the PGA is dedicated to green organizational solutions, and will refrain from using paper where electronic media will serve.
However, you are still welcome to print out an invoice for your records from the site. You can print out an invoice immediately after processing your transaction by clicking the "View Invoice/Receipt” icon at the top of the THANK YOU page. You can also print any of your invoices at a later date by selecting the "View Transaction Details” icon for that invoice on the main Membership Info page (see access details below).
In order to access your account, sign in to the PGA website and then select the "Membership Info" link that is in the gray box on the right side of every page of the site (other than the home page). This page will display the status of your membership and the expiration date of your current dues cycle.
If you do not see the "Securely renew your membership now" link on the Membership Info page, it is likely because you currently have an open invoice that is awaiting full or partial payment. Scroll down to the Transaction History section of the page to look for any open invoices. An open invoice will be marked as Open and display two icons - one to view the invoice details and the other to make an online payment with a credit/debit card.
We recommend that you use the fastest and easiest way to pay your dues, which is paying by your debit/credit card. The PGA website accepts payments from Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. Here are the steps to follow:
Though paying via debit/credit card is strongly encouraged, the PGA still accepts dues payments by check. Here are the steps to follow:
Producers Guild of America
PO Box 8302
Pasadena, CA 91109-8302
The above address is NOT the main Producers Guild office address. Checks sent to the PGA offices in Los Angeles and New York, or to any previously used PO boxes, will need to be re-routed to our accounting office, resulting in a delay of processing and potential disruption of online access and benefits. Again, please only send checks to the above address.
Please note: If a check is received or processed after the 30-day grace period following the expiration date of your prior dues cycle, your online access will be unavailable; access will be restored once the check is received and processed. Therefore, if you are paying by check, think ahead and pay early, if possible. (If your online access becomes unavailable and you have a pressing, emergency need to have your online access reinstated, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Any decisions regarding reinstatement of service will be made on a case-by-case basis.). See the Penalties section below for more details.
If you employ the services of a business manager or other third party, the recommended method for having them process payment on your behalf is for you to provide your business manager with your account sign in details and a link to this page.
You can also follow the pay by check instructions listed above and send your business manager or other third party a link to the invoice generated in Step 6. They can print that invoice and submit a check to complete payment on your behalf. You can also send your business manager the link to an already paid by credit card invoice so they can update their records.
No one likes to assess penalties; people like paying them even less. But as we are an organization of professionals, we request (and incentivize) your professionalism in terms of your dues payments.
To that end: Any member whose dues payment is 45 days late will be assessed a $25 late fee. Any member whose dues payment is 90 or more days late will be assessed a $50 late fee, and have his or her online membership benefits wholly suspended until full payment is made.
Please contact email@example.com if you have any questions. Before emailing, it’d be a good idea to check the general website help page to see if your question is answered there.
