Regular Membership Types & Fees
The Mercer Island Chamber of Commerce offers several membership types: Business, Non-Profit, Non-Profit Fee for Service, Real Estate Company, Real Estate Agent, Restaurant, Home-Based Business and Individual/Non-Business. New member dues are prorated on a quarterly basis, and all membership renewals are billed on an annual basis.
Business Membership Information
Annual business membership investment 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.
Businesses with multiple locations (but having the same name and under the same ownership) may enroll each outlet by combining the number of FTEs for all locations. 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.
$25.00 one-time processing fee for all new members.
