I’m not sure if CNC is right for me?

You may also attend a Hospitality Event, where a member of the Club’s Executive will meet with you, and possibly other prospective members, in an informal setting (coffee, anyone?) to give you a first-hand description of all CNC has to offer.

Once you have paid on PayPal, the webmaster will activate your membership in 24-48 hours. Feel free to contact the webmaster if you don’t receive a: “Welcome to the Calgary Newcomers Club” email.
