  1. During your first meeting, our VP of Membership or a member of the Executive team will connect with you, either before the meeting or during the break.

  3. If you decide to join us, you can pay the fees and we will process your membership. This may take a few days so please be patient with us. If you haven’t decided, you can continue to participate as a guest for as long as you wish.
