I just applied to join the PSL. What all is involved in joining? When should I expect someone to contact me? I read you have to be a "candidate" for awhile. How long does that last? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
You will be contacted. It may take some time though, so be patient.
after that you will probably talk with whoever contacts you for a while to get a feel for you and for you to get a feel for the party. After that you will meet up and how that is handled is up to those who contact you.
Applications dont mean membership. It means you want to become a member and with that there is that process of 'getting a feel' for each other politically and work wise. Usually candidacy starts after a period of time and that generally lasts 6-8 months.
