How do I sign up?

It’s easy! Just click the Subscribe button in the upper right of any page, OR click the Join Now button in the lower right of any page, OR click the button below. Once you do, you should see a popup page with all the options. (Wait on the popup.) Enter your name and email, choose the membership level you want, choose the newsletters you want to receive, and enter your credit card information. That’s it!

AND, if you aren’t sure, you can choose the 30-day free trial to see if membership is for you. At the end of the 30 days, you can cancel at no cost, or you can continue into your paid membership.

And, once you are a member, you don’t have to remember a password! Just enter the email you signed up with, and you’ll get a log-in link. Then read away!

Here’s the Subscribe button I was talking about. Just click it to go to the sign-up portal, and become a member. We’re looking forward to having you as part of the ForwardKY family!
