Membership

How to Join

Membership in The Red Chair is by invitation. You must be at least 19 years old, and have met with someone in leadership at least twice in person to join. This means that we need to meet you at least twice and get to know you a bit before we invite you to participate in our various events. The way to do this is by attending a few munches or sloshes, which are normally held four times a month in Birmingham. You can see dates for these on our calendar.

This screening process helps us protect the confidentiality of our members, while ensuring that prospective members understand the nature of TRC.

Finally, we have reciprocal agreements with similar groups in the region, and members of those are allowed to join TRC with no additional requirements. In addition, we follow a “common sense” policy regarding those who are well known individuals who are well established and trusted in our community.

For other situations, including research, fill out the contact form, and we’ll let you know what policies apply.
