Declaration of Purpose
WHEREAS, this Association of members hereby declares that our main objective is to maintain and improve the civil rights, constitutional guarantees and political freedom for every member and citizen of the United States of America. We believe that the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America guarantees our members free speech, petition, assembly, and the right to gather together for the lawful purpose of advising and helping one another in asserting our rights under the Federal and State Constitutions and Statutes. We also declare the basic right of all of our members to select spokesmen from our number who could be expected to give wisest counsel and advice concerning the need for legal assistance.
WHEREAS, it is hereby declared that we are exercising our right of “freedom of association” as guaranteed by the 1st and 14th Amendments of the U.S. Constitution and equivalent provisions of the various State Constitutions. This means that our association activities are restricted to the private domain only.
WHEREAS, the Association will limit its efforts in furthering these goals to use of the established judicial institutions and procedures that have been established by common law, the United States Constitution, and legislative actions by the Congress of the United States and the legislatures of its States.
WHEREAS, the Association will recognize any person who is in accordance with these principles and policies as a member and will provide a medium through which its individual members seek to make more effective the expression of their own views.
WHEREAS, our purpose as members is to educate and assist members in solving their legal concerns and problems as a preventative measure or as a solution to a present situation or condition through research, providing information and education, or directing the member to the proper resource.
DISCLAIMER: Due to the fact that the legal research, information, data and forms, along with said benefits and services, may not have been offered or prepared by a person licensed to practice law in the State that the Association Member is a resident of or has domicile in, be it known that the benefits and services of the Association are not a substitute for the advice of an attorney. The Association recommends to each member that any and all legal information, education, forms, benefits, and services be reviewed by an experienced licensed member of a State Bar Association.
WHEREAS, it is also recommended by the Association that each member be represented by a supervising attorney of their choice. If the member does not have or has not been able to obtain a supervising attorney, the Association is not responsible for providing an attorney. It will be the responsibility of the member to provide a copy of the product concerning the benefits and services of the Association to the designated supervising attorney when an attorney is hired or used.
WHEREAS, the Association does not act in a representative capacity in protecting, enforcing, or defending the legal rights of a member. The member is always acting in his or her own legal capacity concerning any legal matters whatsoever, unless otherwise outlined by a separate Private Program Agreement.
WHEREAS, I understand that this contract of membership entitles me to full privileges and benefits offered by the Association to my membership in accordance with the rights set out by the Constitution and Amendments of the United States and U.S. Supreme Court decisions explaining those rights.
Section I. Program.

WHEREAS, I understand that it may be necessary for the member to engage attorneys, paralegals, accountants, or other service providers that are outside of the scope of this agreement. In such case, it is solely at the discretion and expense of the member and will not affect or alter the terms of this Agreement in any way.
WHEREAS, I understand that I will be responsible for proof-reading all documents emailed to me. I understand I may need to print and execute such letters prior to returning them to the Association. I understand I will be required to communicate with a Support Representative with any questions and or concerns and provide all documents requested within (3) three business days of date requested.
WHEREAS, in the event of a disagreement or complaint with a Trustee or our staff, the Association will attempt to resolve the issue in a professional manner. The Association understands this process can be stressful time; however, the Association insists that all communication between the members and the Association be conducted in a polite and professional manner. I understand I can be terminated as a member of the Association by a Trustee for a breach of the Articles of Association.
