See below for details on the enhanced benefits offered with these new Investor categories.

All membership renewals are billed on an annual basis. $25.00 one-time processing fee for new members.

Business Membership Information

Annual business membership is based on the number of full-time or full-time equivalent employees (FTEs). FTEs include regular employees, owners, managers, licensees, agents and commissioned sales people.

Full-time staff count as one FTE each. Part-time staff count as hours worked divided by full-time hours. Example: 3 full-time employees and 4 part-time employees equals 5 FTEs.
