Member Registration

Membership is required only for accessing GMI video library, which includes 330+ lesson recordings, lesson pgn files and homework files. You don’t have to apply for a membership to participate group lessons or other events. To become a member, please follow these steps:

Step 1: Registration. From the site menu, click on “MEMBER -> MEMBER REGISTRATION”. Please remember your account ID and password. You will need it to log into your account every time. Once you fill in the registration form, submit, you should receive an email to ask you to “Activate your Account”. Please click on it. However, at this point, you still cannot log into your account. Your account is not fully approved until you complete Step 3.

Step 2: Pay membership fee. Once “activated” your account, you will receive an email instantly from GMI notifying you that “Your account is now pending for payment”. Please follow the instructions in this email to pay your membership fee (payment method is Zelle or PayPal). For international (outside of the US) members, please email us to arrange proper payment.
If you don’t receive a payment email from GMI after registration, please check your junk mail folder, or tabs such as “updates”, “promotions” if you use gmail. Please email us asap if you confirm that you didn’t receive the payment email.

Step 3: Account approved. After we receive your payment, we will send you an email within 12hrs stating that your account on and your membership with GMI are fully activated. Please keep a copy of that email for your record.

Step 4: All set. Once your membership starts, you can log in and you have full access to GMI video library.
