FAQ's About Membership

 

Can I join your group?

Membership is open to anyone who is interested. We do not discriminate or filter members. We do conduct an interview process, but this is geared towards helping potential members truly understand what our group is about and what they can expect. It is not an approval or disapproval process, merely an informational one. If you would like more information about membership, please email us.

 

Is it free to join your group?

No, members pay yearly dues and must be current in order to attend investigations. As a non-profit organization that does not charge for its services, member dues help support organizational costs. In exchange for dues, members are entitled to become a part of our email system and join in on investigations and other client related information. Funds are also used towards the purchase of equipment. These devices are available at investigations for all members to learn about and utilize.

 

If I join, will I need to purchase anything?

All members who plan to attend an investigation and serve as an “investigator” must collect evidence at the investigation. They are then required to review the evidence and provide it to the lead investigator along with a written report. All investigators are asked to record and review audio, however, some members bring different strengths and therefore do not collect audio. Instead, they may excel at some other aspect of the investigation – for example; photography, video, and/or site research and history.

Investments will depend on what tools you plan to use on an investigation. Video equipment, lighting, and some specialty devices are provided by the group, but cameras, audio recorders, or other personal devices are provided by the member. The average investment for all of the audio equipment for recording and review can run roughly $150 - $200. We recommend a good digital recording device with USB capability, a lapel mic, batteries, good quality headphones for audio review, and audio review software.

 

What do you expect from your members?

Participation is really up to you. Some members just enjoy being associated with the group, getting the emails and being able to learn and share with like-minded people. Others enjoy historical investigations while some prefer residential. The single largest criteria we have for a member is when they participate in a client-based case where the client is asking for assistance. This means a report is required. Those investigators who attend MUST be proactive in reviewing their audio, cutting and emailing audio files, and completing the evidence review in a timely manner. It’s one thing to go on an investigation to have fun, but when we are serving a client, dedication to knowing how to review audio and completing reports is a must.

 

I don’t know anything about the paranormal or how to do an investigation. Will you train me?

People from all skill levels have joined our group. There is no requirement for knowing about the paranormal before you can join. Learning is something which takes place over time and through participation. There’s no way to train someone other than to allow them the opportunity to see how an investigation works. Every current member has a unique skill-set, so each one can be of help in the training/learning process. It is our opinion, however, that those who learn the most are those who take a proactive approach. Participation and learning really rests in the hands of the member. There are always members who will help you learn a certain aspect of the investigation process, if you are willing to learn and dedicate the time it.

 

I would like to be a Psychic/Medium with your group. How can I apply?

All new members must first join in the “investigator” position. This allows new members to learn how we conduct an investigation and to learn the basics about our group. It also allows new members to see how we utilize Sensitives (Psychics/Mediums). It is very important that the Sensitives we use are those who have proven genuine verifiable abilities. Their ability to provide solid evidence is crucial. Once a place of accuracy, reliability, and ethical status has been reached, someone can step in and serve as a primary Sensitive on a case. If someone is in an investigative position but feels they are getting psychic information, the group is always open to allowing the information to be shared. We encourage the development and sharing of one’s psychic gifts, however, primary Sensitives are those who have established trust through dedicated time and service.
