Be equipped by becoming a HAPI member.
Definition of Members
A member is broadly classified as either an existing Leader or a Leader-in-training (LIT). A Leader has a group of homeschoolers they represent, either formally through SEC-registered for-profit or non-profit organizations, or informally through Facebook groups and the like. A LIT has the desire to represent a group of homeschoolers but at the time of becoming a HAPI Member is not yet doing so.
A member also chooses whether to be a “working” member. This person commits to be part of a team that handles certain projects and/or tasks for HAPI. In this “working” capacity, they commit to do their best to achieve the goals of the project, including timetables and budgets. In exchange for the work they put in, they are given subsidies on their membership fees.
Given the above definitions, there are effectively four (4) types of HAPI members:
- Working Leader
- Working LIT
Term of Membership
The term of membership is one (1) year, from January 1 to December 31 of said membership year. Where the member signs up outside of the January 1 start date, the membership starts upon sign-up and ends on December 31 of said membership year.
