Current members have the same deal, must be a 2 or 3 year renewal to get the new guide when it comes out. (supposed to be sometime this fall, last rumor I had). You will need the updates since the 2012 guide came out, hopefully they will send the Dec. P&S that had all of them with your package. That update does not have the maps or GPS figures, just the name and state mining claim numbers to work with.
Down at the bottom of the page on community there is a membership button, that will get you to a login or register, then you can go for either one, two ,or three years from there, or life if you want to go that route. I see that membership button at the bottom of the reply box as I'm typing this as well.
