Membership Terms

  • All members must be 21 years of age or older and reside in Cuyahoga, Medina or Summit Counties.
  • You must be willing to attend meetings.
A.P.S.’s meetings are held every other month.  While it is not required that you attend every meeting, we request that you attend at least 3 meetings per year.
  • We also have membership dues in place.  Currently we are requiring a $45 enrollment fee. (This covers the cost of your 1st A.P.S. tee-shirt, your first set of business cards & your first discounted membership fee)  There will then be a $25 yearly membership fee due January 1st every year (or at the first meeting of every year.)
  • We also request that you are able to provide your own transportation.
In some circumstances there maybe carpooling available, but this is not always the case, which is why we ask that you are able to make your own arrangements for transportation.
  • You must have you own equipment.
There are some pieces of equipment that can be shared on certain investigations.  Eventually you will want to have your own arsenal of equipment.
  • We ask that you are open-minded and dedicated to seeking proof of the paranormal.
  • Each new member will go through a probation period for a total of six months, with at least three investigations (if you have not completed 3 investigations by the end of the 6 month period, your probation will continue till you have 3 investigations complete).  Through out this time, participation during investigations, monthly meetings, and all other group events is mandatory.  Assisting any and all departments that need help is also expected, we work as a team and we are here to make every investigation go smooth.
  • The founder, lead investigators and department managers will do reviews with any investigator in training. If upper management feels at any time that any investigator in training is not working out for any reason during the probation period, upper management has the right to dismiss the investigator in training from the team.
  • At the end of the 6-month probation period, or when you have completed 3 investigations, the investigator in training will become a full member of the A.P.S. team.
