Read First Prior to Submitting Application

  • Please make certain you agree to adhere to our Terms of Use and hotlinking policies.
  • Please review our positions prior to submitting an application to make certain your practices parallel our positions because if your application is denied for any of the above reasons you will be refunded the cost of the membership dues minus a 20% administrative fee.
