Registering for GAPC Grower Membership
When growers register for GAPC Grower Membership and a Grower ID card they will be asked to provide the following information:
- Birthdate (MM/DD/YYYY)
- Contact Information
- Farm Name and Address
- County of primary farm operation
- Farm and Operation Profile Information
After growers complete the membership form they will be assigned a Grower ID number (multi-digit number). The Grower ID number and their password will allow a grower to log in at www.gapconnections.com to view their educational activity and profile.
Grower ID Card
The grower ID card would include the grower’s full name, birthdate, grower ID number and a unique QR code that will be scanned at GAP educational/training events. A temporary or permanent Grower ID card can be obtained in a variety of ways.
Option 1: Grower registers on a device that is connected to a printer.
A temporary card can be printed immediately that can be used at a training event until a permanent card can be obtained in the mail.
Option 2: Grower registers on a device without access to a printer.
A grower can use their Grower ID number and password they created when registering to navigate to their grower profile page and print a temporary card when they become connected to a printer. A permanent card will be mailed to you within 3 weeks.
GAPC Grower Membership is free for tobacco growers with a FSA 578 with tobacco acreage listed due to the support of GAPC Company Members. In 2023, GAPC will open GAPC Grower Membership to non-tobacco growers including growers of hemp, fruits, and/or vegetables. GAPC Grower Membership for these non-tobacco growers will be $75 annually.
