We’d love if you would join us!
Whether you are a current MGS Member, or just starting out, we’d be happy to assist you to get connected. You must be a member of MGS in order to join our Branch.
MGS Members, please sign-in to your MANI account and add membership to our Branch.
If you are not yet an MGS Member, you can join and add membership to our Branch all at the same time! Use the information on the MGS Membership page to join both at the same time, either on-line, or by printing out a Membership Form and mailing it back, with payment.
If you have any issues with setting up your membership, please contact us.
