New Member Registration

Join CAPS - Registration Form

Thank you for your interest in joining CAPS. Before you apply to become a member, it's important that you have a clear understating of how CAPS will benefit you. Please read the following carefully before making your final decision to apply.

What CAPS Is

CAPS is a community of experts who speak professionally. Our culture is based on the “CAPS Advantage” philosophy of “LEARN, SHARE, GROW and BELONG”.

Our mission is to raise the profile and professionalism of our members. We do this by providing opportunity for all CAPS members to learn from each other, share with each other, grow as speakers and as leaders and belong to a community that supports them.

What CAPS Is Not

CAPS is not a speaker bureau or speaker agent. Although we do provide a listing of some speaking opportunities, we do not promote individual members, provide marketing services or find engagements for our members.

By applying for a CAPS Membership, you:

1. Agree to abide by the CAPS Code of Professional Ethics as a CAPS member.

2. Certify that you qualify for the membership category for which you are applying. Please read #3 to review the criteria for each membership category.

3. You understand that all new Professional, Candidate and Supplier members must provide supporting documents.

  • For Candidate Membership: please email a list of 10 fee paid engagements listing client, date and amount received in your lifetime (no time limit) to info@canadianspeakers.org
  • For Professional Membership: please email one (1) of the following to info@canadianspeakers.org:
    - a list of 20 fee paid engagements listing client / date / amount received in the past 12 months OR
    - a list of paid engagements totalling $25,000 OR
    - a note saying that you do 20 or more engagements as part of a salaried role
  • For Supplier Membership: please email info@canadianspeakers.org with verification that you provide goods or services to the speaking industry

Supporting documentation must be received by CAPS office before your application can be formally approved.

In order to process the paperwork we must receive payment, however, in the unlikely event you do not meet the requirements for your Membership Category, we will return membership fee within 30 days.

You will be notified by e-mail once your membership application has been approved. Please allow 2-3 weeks. ONLY after your membership application has been approved will your CAPS membership commence. Your email confirmation will indicate the start date of your membership, which coincides with the month in which your documentation was processed.

All new members will receive a $100 coupon towards the registration fee for their 1st attended Annual CAPS Convention.
