Membership Exception Request
This form is to be completed by a parent, advocate or related professional who is interested in becoming a new COPAA member but does not qualify for membership under COPAA's Bylaws (click here to view).  Please review the criteria carefully before submitting. 

Process and estimated timeline:

1) Please be sure to complete this form thoroughly. 
2) You are responsible to request letters of recommendations from at least two current COPAA members.  Please instruct them to send to membership@copaa.org. Note: School Board Members and Law Students do not require recommendation letters
3) The form and letters (if required) are reviewed by the COPAA's Membership Co-Chairs.
4) A designated Membership Co-Chair will contact the individual making an exception request or their references as necessary to clarify any questions or request additional information.
5) The Membership Committee Co-chairs submit a recommendation to approve or not to COPAA's Board of Directors.  Any recommendation must past the Board with a 3/4 majority vote.    
6) Pending new member will be notified of the outcome. If membership is approved, it will be activated for a full year from that date. If not approved, a full refund will be issued. 

The entire process takes 2-4 weeks from the time that all required information is received by COPAA's Membership Committee.
