You don't as an individual. Clubs can affiliate with CMP and all members of that club have access to the CMP.

Most state associations are members. Many local clubs are members.

Find A CMP-Affiliated Club

Tell us your location and I bet you will get some invitations to join clubs in your area.

You can also go on the CMP web site and sign up to receive their email announcements about matches and other CMP shooting related items.

Additionally you can go to the Competition Tracker section, register and get a competition number if you plan to shoot CMP matches. Doesn't do a lot other than give them a reference spot to record you scores from affiliated matches.

Not sure why you're asking this question.  If it's because you want to purchase ammo from them (or I believe a Garand or 1911) there's a bunch of paperwork involved - but IMHO it's worth it.

So, for example, I just purchased some ammo from them.  Although I had "joined" years ago, all my info. had lapsed, so I had to do everything all over again.  As I recall to purchase ammo I had to: 

1. Fill out some paperwork, which I then had to have notarized.  

2.  Provide them with a copy of my driver's license.

3.   Prove U.S. Citizenship (copy of my passport).

4.   Prove that I was a member in good standing of a CMP affiliated gun club.

I think if you're under 60 you also have to provide proof of participation in some kind of CMP recognized match, but I'm over 60 so I didn't have to worry about this.

As you can see, it's kind of a PITA.  However, if you're interested in purchasing ammo from them (at generally decent prices at least in the current climate).  Or you want to buy a Garand/.22 trainer/1911, etc. it's worth it.

One more CMP question:
I have shot in EIC CMP matches but never shot in a CMP 900.  i have an NRA rating.  Will I shoot my first CMP 900 as "unclassified" or use the NRA classification?

From the cmp rule book 3.11.4 f)

Classification Reciprocity. Competitors who do not have a CMP classification, but who have an NRA classification, may elect to compete with their current NRA classification. After a competitor establishes a CMP classification, they may continue to elect to compete with an NRA classification if it is higher than their CMP classification, but they may not compete with an NRA classification that is lower than their CMP classification
