Once a User Profile has been created, you will be automatically directed to the Presidents’ Alliance Dashboard.  From this page, select the "Join the Presidents’ Alliance" option to begin the membership process.

From the "Join the Presidents’ Alliance" page, you will have to complete three steps.  You may save your work at any time by selecting the "Save as Draft" button at the end of the page and then clicking the "Submit" button.
