Membership application

What’s next?

After you submit the application, you will receive an email confirmation with information about how to submit the supporting documents required. Your application isn't complete until we receive your documents. It takes about three weeks to review your application.

During the review stage, we may contact you with questions about your application. If the application is rejected, you'll have an opportunity to address the issue and resubmit.


When the application is approved, you'll receive an agreement to review, sign and return to us. We'll send your Alliance ID when we receive the signed agreement. The customer needs your ID to apply for incentives.
