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.
