I just wanted to know how long was the process to get affiliated. I sent in my application on May 22nd. I'm just anxious to get going and wanted to know what are the following steps after application.
Thank you to all for your help.

Step 1: Submit application.
Step 2: Make it happen.

Call, email, call, email, call, Tony B.

3,2,1, GO.

Better to call or email Nicole; Tony is the full-time media guy now, and Nicole is the affiliate program director.

I am curious too about the average turn-time on getting approval.

We are hoping to open our doors (and share the CrossFit message) as soon as August 1st but I haven't heard anything (and it's been maybe 10 days or so). I've emailed Nicole a couple times but I haven't heard anything.

I am confident she is busy traveling and I'd hate to be a nuisance but at the same time, we are trying to open our business too. Any advice on how to help the process along? Thanks!

I've been very lucky in that it only took a week to hear news, and it was good. Signing the lease tomorrow and hopefully the insurers will get back to me today - they can write a letter of indemnity but they're not sure if they can put the name on the cert.
