Logging into convenience.org is the only way to ensure you have access to all member discounts, exclusive offers, and account management. From any page on the website, click “Log in” at the top right corner. Most web browsers will remember you for future sessions unless you actively log-out, which makes access to your benefits easy! You can tell if you’re successfully logged in if you see your name in the top right corner!
A detailed login process guide available here.
If your company is a NACS member, or if you’ve attended a NACS event, its most likely that we already have an account for you in our system. You just need to search for yourself as a returning user and reset your username and password (even if this is your first time logging in).
If you’re certain this is the first time you’ll interact with NACS in any way, please create your profile here.
Hint: If you receive NACS emails, you’ve got an account! Create your password to log in and manage your profile! When in doubt, please contact your membership team for support.
It’s a common misconception that only one shared username and password is permitted to manage the company account. While the membership is held by the company, all employees are encouraged to set up their own log in for their own user account. We assign permissions for individuals as administrators to allow only certain people oversight of the company account. Otherwise, all individuals can manage their individual email preferences, interests, access to benefits logged in as themselves!
Invite your colleagues to create their own complimentary user account by completing the Max Your NACS invitation form.
If you’re already logged in, you can reset your username and/or password from the My Settings tab in your user profile.
If you are not logged in and need help, we now offer 3 easy methods of password recovery. From the Log In page, you can follow the “Forgot Username or Password” link to access the recovery process.
In 2022, NACS launched a brand-new user profile system that allows users to manage their NACS email preferences in more ways. We now offer all users the ability to save their Interests to their profile which allows NACS to know more about what you want or need to know. This allows NACS to reduce the amount of messaging you receive in areas that do not apply to you. You can review the available interests list and save your selections on the very bottom of the My Profile page.
Email preferences allows the user to opt-out entirely of NACS emails. Opt-outs are also offered in categories to give the user more flexibility on which messaging they allow. Email preferences are managed on the Email Preferences tab of your user profile.
With the 2022 system upgrades, NACS now offers much more flexibility to have users from the same company help manage their colleagues online. There are some limitations, however.
Company membership applications will need to be submitted by the individual user who will be the primary contact for the application. Primary contacts can be changed once the application is approved.
Subscriptions to NACS Daily, NACS Magazine, and FMN Magazine must be managed by the individual user. Assigned primary and admin contacts will have authority to manage subscriptions in bulk but must contact the NACS team to arrange this.
Registration for NACS events can now be managed by anyone with a user profile within your company. The first page of most NACS event registrations will ask if this registration is for you or for someone else. Type a name of your colleague to complete a registration on someone’s behalf. If the name of your colleague does not appear when you search, the individual is not currently associated with your company record at NACS. To add users to the company profile, follow the prompts at www.convenience.org/login or contact a NACS staff.
The new NACS System allows companies to assign up to 6 specific roles outlined below. All additional users will be added to the company record as a user to benefit from the company membership without administrative authority.
If you are assigned currently as the primary or admin contact, you can visit the Company Profile page and make necessary edits to who has authority to manage your company account.
If you are not currently assigned as a primary or admin contact, you will need to contact a NACS staff to verify that these changes are necessary due to staff changes, departures, etc.
Once a company record is set up with NACS, as a member or not, the company can add all employees to their record. There is no limit to how many users a company can include. And there is no limit to how many users can benefit from member only access and discounts. Increase your ROI by sharing your membership with your entire company. From the c-suite to boots on the ground, we have something for everyone!
With our new system, users can update their company from their own user profile. Simply log in with your existing account and visit the My Profile and use the functions under “Identify My Company.” Adding yourself to a new company will send an alert to the Primary or Admin contacts at the new company. They can review and reject any fraudulent or accidental users joining their account.
If you need to move yourself to a company that does not yet exist in the NACS system, please contact NACS staff for support before removing your current company affiliation.
NACS now accepts all retail membership applications through our online user portal. You will use the online system to set up your account and submit the necessary information for your application. If your application is approved, your payment can be collected online, or we can send a PDF invoice to pay by check.
Supplier applications can be submitted online or by contacting the supplier membership team at NACS.
Annual NACS memberships are valid from January 1 until December 31 each year. However, when applications are approved mid-year your benefits will be active for 365 days from the date of approval. NACS offers a prorated amount off your 2nd year membership to account for the portion of your first year that you were not members.
For example, If you join in July you will pay an entire year membership dues up front. You will have access to these benefits until the next July. Five months into your first year, that December, NACS will prompt you to renew and offer you 6 months off your next dues payment. When you accept this offer, from then on, your membership will expire in December of each year. If you do not accept the prorated offer, you risk a lapse in membership in the future.
NACS encourages all members to renew in December each year regardless of join date to ensure no lapse in benefits. A grace period is offered to ensure members have ample time to renew, but your status will show as expired beginning 12/31 each year.
NACS staff personally review all membership applications to ensure the information is complete and the member type applied for is the best fit. The review period can take 24 – 48 business hours. Once approved, your payment will be processed. Benefits are available immediately when payment is successfully processed. Paying by credit card or ACH online is the fastest way to join.
Notice to retail member applicants: Please plan for some delay if you wish to join immediately before registering for the NACS Show, we don’t want you to risk missing the best rates to attend when your application is still pending review. Application approval delays can be anticipated due to volume before all price changes and in the last 2 weeks prior to the NACS Show.
For retail membership types, NACS Staff will verify:
If you do not yet own a convenience retailing site, NACS is happy to include you in all communications, activities, events, at the non-member rate. If you are opening soon (in 6 months or sooner), please contact the NACS Staff to review membership options. Private equity firms must operate their locations to qualify as a retailer.
For supplier members, NACS Staff will verify:
Log into your user profile and check your Company Membership tab to view the status of any existing memberships.
Yes. Please review the Membership Terms and Conditions before applying to join or renewing your membership.
(Swipe fees may apply... Hate swipe fees? Join us in the fight).
Membership in NACS is NOT tax-deductible as a charitable contribution, but a portion is deductible as a business expense. Since NACS engages in lobbying, under federal law, 60%* of your dues for the year 2023 is nondeductible.
*This percentage is calculated each year based on actual lobbying expenses. Please check back each year!
Retailer annual dues are calculated on fee schedule that varies across the 5 membership types. Domestic Retailer members can estimate their dues using the Dues Calculator tool. To review all dues for Retail membership types, visit Retail Membership page.
Supplier membership dues are $1,100 annually. Hunter Club and Global Supplier Council member programs require additional dues investment. Visit the supplier membership page for more detail.
