by J.R.Myers, NCM, CPMT 9/25/2018
"Whereas, both the National and State organizations of the Constitution Party (CP) need reliable sources of revenue to operate and expand their activities,
Whereas, the CP has previously offered supporters and local and state members the opportunity to contribute their direct monetary support to the party through their payment of annual membership dues,
Whereas, the CP has previously offered such dues paying members official CP membership cards,
Therefore, be It Resolved that the CP National Chairman shall appoint a CP Member(s) to coordinate with the CP National Treasurer, Secretary and Chairman to immediately recreate a suitable and durable Official Constitution Party Membership Card, and optional CP Membership Certificate. These cards/certificates shall include the CP Members Name, as well as their Original Date of Membership and the current Date & Level of Membership. The Official CP Membership Cards and Certificates shall also include a membership number and shall be signed by the National Chairman, the National Secretary, or the National Treasurer. All funds raised shall be deposited in the appropriate bank accounts in a timely manner. There shall be Five Levels of CP Membership. Each member shall also receive an Official CP Welcoming Packet which shall include Official CP literature, CP Contact Information and a pocket U.S. Constitution.
Citizen Activist Membership $10.00/Year. (Membership Card/Certificate)
Freedom Fighter Membership $20.00/Year. (Membership Card/Certificate, Pocket Constitution)
Constitutional Patriot Membership $50.00/Year. (Membership Card/Certificate, Pocket Constitution, 1 gram 999.9 pure silver ingot).
Silver Liberty Membership $100.00/Year. (Membership Card/Certificate, Pocket Constitution, 1 gram pure 999.9 pure silver ingot, The 5,000 Year Leap).

This membership program shall divide all receipts, on a 50%/50% basis, between the National CP and the dues paying members’ Credentialed CP State Affiliate, after reasonable administrative expenses of no more than 10% are deducted by the National CP. In the case that the dues paying member doesn’t live in a state with an official CP Affiliate, the funds will be diverted to four segregated Regional States funds set up and maintained by the National Treasurer for use by the associated Regional States Chairman to further their organizational efforts in their specific region."
This membership card may be offered as proof of CP involvement, especially in states without voter registration by Party, or an existing organized Affiliate.
