I just received a certificate of membership that says: " DL Limousine is a member of good standing of GCLA". Everybody is telling me that the correct one would be: " DL Limousine is a member in good standing of GCLA". Could someone help me? Thank you.

Yes, "in good standing" is correct.

Welcome to Using English, duimbp.

If GCLA is 'The Greater Chicago Locksmith's Association' or 'The Gulf Coast Lacrosse Association', it would need 'the' before it.

i would say '...in good standing of the GCLA' or '...of good standing in the GCLA'.
