Knowledge is Power
Freedom is simple. Maintaining freedom requires education.
Private Membership Associations are:
- Lawful, legally recognized and appropriate.
- Sometimes called unincorporated associations.
- Present throughout American history and into 2022.
- All over, you just don’t know it!
- Supported by case law and the Constitution.
What Is a Private Membership Association?
A Private Membership Association is men and woman collectively asserting and standing upon their secured perfect rights to assemble and associate and, often, Religious Liberties.
The men and women of the Association retain their Liberty never having had to give it up in the first place.
This concerns all matters of education, business, health and finances; full authority and control over the health of their own body, mind and spirit and God given rights.
Freedom from whom?
A PMA does not need any authority or permission, of any kind whatsoever, from any government for its creation or in order for it to continue to exist and function.
A PMA is created by and exists upon the contract authority and power that people have reserved for themselves.
A PMA cannot be made to release its member roles to the public nor state. Alabama v NAACP (1958).
A PMA functions by the members acting as people, in their real private character and capacity, “No State can make a law that impairs the obligation of a contract” and therefore is without jurisdiction. Hale v Henkel (1906).
PMA members are free to exchange any services or information whatsoever on any topic they choose and can speak or write about, listen to, or read any information, use or obtain any information, product, or service on any terms agreeable to any member who chooses to provide that information, product, or service within the private membership association.
Do I need a Lawyer?
Please don’t. Lawyers are sworn to the court. Not to you. Not to our Constitution. They will draft statutory compliant documents that keep you in the public domain. Just, no.
Do I write my own Bylaws?
Nay! We do the heavy lifting for you but you CAN customize your Bylaws for such needs as authority structure within your Association, meeting intervals, offices/duties, etc.
Can I get a bank account?
Of course you can! To get a bank account you’ll need an EIN (one of the steps we help you with, when you form with us!)
Should I have insurance?
You are not required to have insurance and your members explicitly agree not to persue legal action unless you place them in a clear and present danger of substantive evil. BUT … it is prudent to have general liability for the property on which you’re operating. We do.
Is forming a PMA expensive?
Forming a PMA, with all proper documentation is between $1800-2400. Forming and unincorporated “free” church is $4800.
How quickly can I be up and running?
From our first meeting to completion, allowing for ample education, about 2 weeks.
Do I really get to do whatever I want in our PMA?
Yeah, yeah you do! You can do pretty much anything except put your members (or the surrounding public) in a clear and present danger of substantive evil.
