    Website Listing

    CPGC maintains a listing of members' names, contact information and research services on our website in the "Member's Only" area. This information is available to members. New members will be provided with instructions on creating an account in order to view the Member's Only area.

    Creating an account is not mandatory but in addition to allowing members access to minutes and handouts from prior presentations, it allows you create a CPGC Profile so you can advertise your services. There is also an option for you have this profile and to opt out of having your profile appear in the directory if you do not want your information public.
