In a default Plone 'join' is handled as a user action.
It is defined on the actions tool ('portal_actions').

If you go to the ZMI -> portal_actions and select
the 'user' category you will find under 'join' the
definition of the action.
Change the URL (Expression) in that definition to
point wherever you want.
