FAQs: Frequently Asked Questions

Is membership by individual or company?

Both.  We offer the opportunity for companies to join, which allows to members to participate as well as individual memberships which are either paid for by the company or by the member themselves.


What is the time commitment? 

We encourage members to attend as many events as possible, although we understand people’s schedules won’t typically allow for them to attend every event. 


Are there other people in the group who are in the same profession that I am in? 

Membership categories are limited to 5 per industry or profession.


Will I get business from becoming a member? 

Potentially, yes.  We have many members who work together directly and by forming strategic partnerships. We encourage members to get to know one another, learn what they do, how they do it and why they do what they do. However, because our focus is building relationships not business development, we do not allow our events to be used “marketplace” for guests and members to “sell” their goods and services.  


What is the cost to join? 

- The cost to join varies depending on the membership type.

-  Payment arrangements are available for individual members who join on a quarterly or monthly payment schedule

-  Packages are available for companies that wish join and become event or corporate sponsors
