Do you know the truth about PMAs?
During COVID, there was a huge surge in Private Membership Associations (PMAs). Unfortunately, the majority of the information being shared about PMAs is FALSE – and I am on a mission to share the real truth about PMAs through this introductory-level course.
Course Instructor: Angela Harders
Hello! My name is Angela, and I am the course instructor for The Truth about PMAs course. David Edwards drafted the founding documents for my PMA, a “508c1a faith-based ministry,” in October of 2021.
As a former public school teacher, I was eager to offer my experience and expertise as an educator in the PMA space, and I went through David Edwards’ training program in order to become a certified PMA Advisor with PMA Power, one of the largest PMA organizations on the planet.
After obtaining certification and completing the mentorship component, I began to research PMAs in depth in order to design a course for my clients. However, I quickly realized that the majority of what we had been taught about PMAs was simply not true – and that misinformation could potentially cause harm to many freedom-loving people.
I began to bring my concerns to the PMA power team, but they refused to listen to me or answer any of my questions. So, I continued to compile my research, and ultimately published my findings in February 2023 in a 26-page document called ” The PMA Manifesto.”
Within one hour of sharing the Truth about PMAs video, I along with 4 other PMA Power Advisors were removed and blocked from all PMA Power groups. We grew exceedingly concerned about the misinformation that supposed “experts” continue to share about PMAs, so I created this course to be able to share the Truth about Private Membership Associations (PMAs).
I am honored to share my knowledge with you so that you can truly make an informed decision about which organizational structure would be the best fit for you and your personal and professional goals.
