As an ElvisInsider you have access to "never and rarely seen photos, artifacts, video clips and documents from the Graceland archives, exclusive updates, and news about Elvis before anyone else" according to the press release.
The Press Release:
Launch of the historic, unprecedented 24/7 Webcam on ElvisInsiders.com from Elvis’s upstairs bedroom window heralds the premiere of the new Official Elvis Insiders members only Web site.
Graceland/Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. has launched the Official Elvis Insiders today, an exciting and exclusive new affinity group and premiere online community for Elvis fans everywhere.
The unique program is the evolution of the Official Elvis Collector’s Club which boasts thousands of members from around the world. These additional benefits provide the ultimate online Elvis experience, including an update to the extremely popular message board with a new, much-requested live chat room which will provide members one more way to spend time together in their ever-expanding online Elvis community. It will also allow Graceland the opportunity to host chats with people who knew or worked with Elvis or are involved with his career today.
In addition to the 24/7 webcam that allows fans to see what Elvis saw from his bedroom window at Graceland, Elvis Insiders members will receive exclusive access to never and rarely seen photos, artifacts, video clips and documents from the Graceland archives, and they will enjoy confidential information, exclusive updates and news about Elvis before anyone else. Members will be able to explore more of the Graceland archives when, each week another artifact or rare photo or video (updated monthly) is added to the Exclusive Image Gallery and Exclusive Audio and Video Gallery.
“The dictionary defines an “insider” as a person recognized or accepted as a member of a group, and a person who has access to confidential information and special knowledge,” said Scott Williams, of Elvis Presley Enterprises. “This is what this EPE affinity group has become.”
Upon joining, members receive a deluxe membership kit, quarterly newsletters, weekly e-newsletters and invitations to upcoming parties and events in Memphis for members only.
