Domestic Abuse Intervention Program Membership
Application Process

Batterer Intervention Programs seeking to become LCADV members must complete the BIP Membership Application and return it to LCADV with all supporting documentation.  A committee will review the application.

If the application paperwork is approved, the committee will present it to the existing membership body of LCADV, who then votes on whether to accept the applicant as a new member.  The applicant may be asked to come to a membership meeting and make a presentation. The applicant will then be notified of the membership decision.
