In order to keep the size of the community small, new members are admitted to Cascadia as as existing members choose to leave. Typically, however, a small number of new members are admitted at the beginning of each new program year on April 1. Applications for these limited positions open on October 1 and close on December 31 of each year. Applications are submitted online (see below) and require the submission of one reference (see below). Please be sure to carefully review the website information before applying as it is updated each year prior to the opening of applications.
Admission decisions will be communicated in the last two weeks of January. Admission is is confirmed by receipt of annual, non-refundable membership fee which is due no later than February 1.
To apply, complete the form below, making sure to have your referee also complete the reference form as soon as possible after you submit your application. Completed applications (including the receipt of a reference) will be acknowledged by email.
The annual non-refundable membership fee provides 12 months of access to the ongoing online discussions and video-conferences. Please note that this fee does not include the cost of books or other suggested resources.
2020 – 2021 Membership Fees
Scholarship funds may sometimes be available to help accepted applicants who need assistance with the program fee. Please contact the Cascadia office by email if this is your situation, indicating the nature and extent of your financial need.
