A group of dedicated volunteers felt that Arab-Palestinian Manitoban community need to have a mechanism to get together, to share experiences and insights, celebrate our culture, and serve as a forum where we can debate and decide on issues that affect us as a cultural minority. Hence we agreed to establish CPAM.
All expenses have thus far been paid out of pocket by the founding members, but as our membership grows we will have a more stable financial base to support our activities.
Join! Participate! Benefit! Succeed!
Membership to CPAM is for all Palestinian Arabs in Canada.
Membership dues cover from January 1st through December 31st of each calendar year. Members must be 18 years or older. Membership dues are not tax deductible even though CPAM is registered as a not-for-profit Manitoba organization. Only paid members are eligible to receive convention reduced rates.
Student Membership: $25
Non-student Membership: $40
Family Membership (no children over 18 years): $60
Membership dues are a primary source of income for our organization. By building our financial base through individual contributions (dues and donations) we create financial and policy independence.
The views expressed by CPAM will be rooted in our community of members, not in the agendas of funding agencies or large individual donors who may then attempt to dictate terms.
Currently, the full membership goes into the General Fund Account to pay for the day-to-day operations. Our goal is to increase membership so that we can advance the causes of education, progress, and justice. Paying your membership dues allows you to vote in our board elections.
