The Chamber’s Membership Pricing – Easy to Find, Easy to Understand.
The number of employees (Full Time Equivalent) my business has:
(1-20 FTE Employees)
(21-100 FTE Employees)
(101-499 FTE Employees)
(500+ FTE Employees)
*We currently offer membership dues on a structure based on the number of Full-Time Equivalent Employees, or FTEs. For example, if you are a small business and work full time, with 2 additional part-time employees, your FTE count would roughly be “2”. If you’re still not sure, try this: take the # of payroll hours in a week /40 hours. For example, 367 payroll hours would be 9.175 employees, which we round to 9 FTEs.
*If you have a corporate headquarters and separate branches or businesses under that umbrella, you can count the full number of people in those locations with corporate, and have all branches listed, not just the corporate branch.
*Non-profits are businesses. We do not discount memberships for non-profits*, however – we will offer non-profits 1/2 of your membership fee (new or renewal) annually in Chamber Channel Advertising IF your membership is paid in FULL (not quarterly, monthly, etc.) EX: For a non-profit with 50 employees, your dues would be $600, you would have $300 in advertising credit if you pay your dues in the annual renewal amount. You can use this for our quarterly mailer, weekly update, and job postings! *If your non-profit has ZERO paid staff, please contact us.
*New Businesses – If you make a SMART START and decide to join the chamber within the first three months of opening your business, AND you pay your dues in FULL (not quarterly, monthly, etc.), You’ll receive 1/2 of your membership fee in Chamber Channel Advertising. EX: For a new small business with 12 employees, your dues would be $400, you would have $200 in advertising credit if you pay your dues in full. You can use this for our quarterly mailer, weekly update, and job postings!
