Rules of Membership
- Monthly meeting will be held at 6:45 AM, 3rd Wednesday of each month.
- Attendance at meetings is required. Only two unexcused absences per calendar year will be allowed before your business category is reopened. Unusual circumstances will be reviewed by the Board of Directors.
- The purpose of the organization is networking or building relationships. As such, each member is responsible to help build the network. Each member should bring one guest/prospective member to a meeting during the year. This requirement expires when membership reaches 40.
- Only one member is allowed per business category. A “Business Category” will be defined by the membership committee.
- Membership fees must be paid on time. Fees not paid by the due date will cause business category to be reopened.
- Membership shall belong to the person/entity that has paid for it. Transfers shall be in accordance with existing rules and regulations.
- In the event your business category has been reopened and given to another party, you may reapply for membership at the beginning of the new year. Note that if your category is no longer open, membership may be disallowed.
- Ideally, the sponsor will have resolved potential conflicts before a prospective member is invited as a guest. A prospective member will complete this application. Once the board members have reviewed the application the new members will be accepted. You will receive a welcome letter within seven days of application.
- Please respect other business categories. Discuss only your business category during meetings.
