To "Bait A Hook" (BAH) requires a few things at inception of CFM membership.  If you are a returning CFM member and have completed the below starter checklist, please go here (registered members only) for the BAH form. Before submitting a BAH form, members have to post their BAH in the Open Session Call - Forum area of the site. Go here.

Baiting A Hook (BAH) involves determining your session needs and filling out the "BAH" form, your "unique" BAH name, type of services you are seeking, the compensation you are offering, the time line (suggested at least 7 days), in addition to providing the necessary files to share with members for the BAH project.

When a member posts a BAH, your BAH, service order, will post in the BAH RSS feed on the right if you designate it a "public" BAH. It is from there  that other CFM members will get notice of your active BAH, in addition to, should they elect - receive emails and/or txt messages alerts. Members that elect to have a "private" BAH, can utilize our "Production Groups" area of the site, where they can interact with members they elect to invite to their individual private BAH production.

Members are encouraged to "subscribe" to the BAH category of the Open Session Call Forum area in order to receive timely notification(s) of any newly posted BAH's before they are "broadcast" on the feeds..

Again, all members need to post their "BAH" here, before - proceeding with the BAH form seen here below. 


Please see below vid for further instructions on "BAH" process!
