CAPS is a membership based non-profit organization.
Individual producer memberships are suggested $40 per year and include all training classes, equipment and facilities usage. Non-profit Organizations may join for a suggested $100.00 and allows for up to four individuals each with full producer privileges. Non-profits will be required to show proof of their 501(c)3 status with their EIN number verifiable by staff. If you wish to pay less than the suggested annual fee, you must come into the CAPS Media Center in person. Once a producer has completed the application process, they may submit programs for cablecast and make use of training, equipment and facilities.

Prior to attending the Orientation class, it is recommended that producers complete the membership application and pay the appropriate fee. Payments may be made online below or in person at our media center. We also accept cash or checks in person at our facility. You will be required to bring in the completed membership application, payment or proof of payment and provide proof of your eligibility in one of the following forms: a valid photo ID or other proof of residency (cable bill or other utility bill received at your home or business address – No PO boxes will be accepted), current student ID or class registration, or you may bring proof of employment with a Ventura based business or non-profit.
