Cost Of Membership

ZPO will need to sustain itself and cover the costs of its programs. Financial support is part of the practice field of all members. 

Current ZPI member dues of more than $18.00 per month or $180.00 per year qualify as ZPO membership dues.

Those not current ZPI members are encouraged to become so.

Otherwise ZPO membership dues are $18.00 per month or $180.00 per year.

Additionally, individual and series courses will carry a fee.

(FYI ZCLA just offered a four-part course, 90 minutes each, $15 per class for Members; $25 per class for Non-Members. This feels about right. -GSOK)

Membership and course fees are all subject to ability to pay. Speak with your mentor for adjustments to fees.

(Need more detail here.)

(This page would include the paths detailed previously for those who want to register as prior ZPO members and for those who want to join as a new member. Linked to registration pages.)
