For the Nashville chapter, we will invite you to one of our membership events which are held once during the fall, and once during the spring,  for you to learn more.

If accepted, you will gain access to Forum training and meetings, chapter and Global events, and a wide variety of other exclusive benefits. Within your first three months, you will also receive an orientation which will include a welcome package and introductory calls from Global staff.

During your first few months of joining, you will go through Forum training and be placed in a Forum group.


There is a one-time initiation fee of $2500, and annual membership dues are currently $4650.  Upon joining, you would pay the initiation fee plus the pro-rated membership dues based on the quarter you join.  Dues are collected annually during the month of June.
