NAGARA recognizes that many government organizations require a purchase order or physical invoice for payment processing. We are happy to help! To obtain a physical invoice for your membership dues, simply complete the online registration process and when you arrive at the final step of registration (the payment screen), simply select "Pay Later" from the listed options and then click the orange "Submit Order" to complete the application process. A PDF copy of your membership dues invoice will then be e-mailed to you for payment processing. Your membership with NAGARA will "go live" upon full receipt of payment.
