Upon receipt of a completed application and the non-refundable application fee, the applicant will be added to the Forum Club’s waiting list and undergo the vetting process. While waiting to be approved for membership, applicants receive a reduced ticket price of $50 to attend in-person events and $15 to attend virtual events.
New members are approved by the Board of Directors twice annually – in December and June. If accepted in December, the first-year membership contribution is $525 ($175 initiation fee, $350 membership contribution). If accepted in June, the first-year membership contribution is pro-rated at $350 ($175 initiation fee, $175 membership contribution) to reflect acceptance half-way through the Forum Club’s billing cycle. After the first year, the annual membership contribution is $350 and will be due in February of each year.
As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, all or part of the annual membership contribution may be tax deductible as a charitable contribution. Please check with a tax advisor for more information.
