What is the Financial Investment?
Corpath minimum ministry support is $2,400 annually (may be paid $220 monthly) for regular members and $1,200 annually (may be paid $110 monthly) for our Accelerator Forums. The ministry support will start once you have been established with a Forum group and have your first monthly meeting. Most of our members pay by monthly credit card auto-debit. You will be given a new member sign up form on which you may select your preferred payment frequency.
These payments are on a cost recovery basis and pay for program costs, staff salaries, website maintenance, promotion costs and the establishment of new Forums.
What is the Application Process?
- Fill out the online Membership Enquiry Form and submit.
- You will have an initial meeting with a person from the Membership Committee to discuss your personal goals for joining a Corpath Forum and whether there is a fit.
- If you qualify, you will be referred to a Forum Moderator who will contact you and discuss your fit with his/her Forum and make a decision on your application.
As we have found that it is crucial to ensure a good fit when a new member is joining a Forum group, the above process may stretch over several months. We ask for your patience as you go through the process.
