Dallas Ft. Worth - Washington D.C. - Seattle - New Orleans
If you wish to join and have us waive the application fee and first year's dues, then we require you to read at least seven books total from the following lists - there will be a quiz...
I realize that even if buying at a discount, the total cost can run a substantial amount. But the reason for this requirement is because we don't have time for individuals who aren't willing to show a track record of interest by investing time and money into this field. Too often, we get approached by people who are all on fire in the beginning and want to come on investigations, but as soon as you ask them to do some actual work, they vaporize. We don't care if it's money you give us or one of the authors - we just need proof up front that you really want to do this.
