Communities can fulfill the human spirit only through cooperation, tolerance, understanding and acceptance among neighbors, as well as among nations. Direct individual, positive, peaceful and constructive involvement, in the spirit of mutual interests, within a local community, enriches the quality of all human life, generating peaceful resolution of differences and cooperation within, between and among all communities everywhere.
The Cepia Club LLC maintains four levels of participation.
PARTICIPANTS—At the highest level, on the broadest base, and of the greatest consequence for our efforts, we count our supporters in the general public, and we style those of ex officio and casual affiliation as PARTICIPANTS. We ask Participants to receive and share our materials, our goals, and our efforts in the spirit WE share them: With liberty, generosity, justice and tolerance.
CepiaNet—The CepiaNet counts all those who request or accept our direct and broadcast communications, announcements, publications, and other materials from Cepiaclub. Whether joining our Yahoo! Group broadcast list to receive these easily, or to receive them by other means (direct email, addressed s-mail, hand-delivered, etc.), CepiaNet recipients may both opt out of the network, or conversely, share and forward our materials to increase their involvement, but doing so on their own responsibility. (NOTE: Some of the means of CepiaNet delivery, like postal mail or hand-delivered materials, or even for Cepiaclub's premium subscriptions to certain products and services, may require a small or advertised fee). If sharing our materials, as we ask of the ex officio Participants (see above), Cepiaclub requests the CepiaNet to share with others the spirit we intend by all of our communications, with liberty, generosity, justice and tolerance. And in doing such informative activism, Cepiaclub asks all the CepiaNet to work toward our common aim: Peace & Prosperity anywhere. As a network of openly seen profiles (in particular, on our Yahoo! Groups), anyone qualified may join CepiaNet, minding some restrictions on age, comportment, and suitability of which The Cepia Club LLC remains the sole and final judge. The CepiaNet individuals may not act in our name without the express permission of The Cepia Club LLC, but on the other hand, we ask that they adhere to the spirit of the Four Commitments, our Prime Commitment, the rules of organization, methods, and guidelines for our brand of awareness and activism if given permission to act on behalf of The Cepia Club LLC or apart from it and part of CepiaNet. Anyone may join CepiaNet by joining for free our Yahoo! Groups service; or join by forwarding to us an email address, or other preferred contact data, by a simple request (go to our Contacts page, or click here).
