Membership Investment

Annual membership investment is based on average full-time equivalent (FTE) employee count, using the following formula:

  • 1 - 49 employees: $595/year
  • 50 - 75 employees: $650/year
  • 76 - 100 employees: $725/year
  • Over 101 employees: $7.25 per employee, $4995 maximum

Additionally, membership requires a one-time enrollment fee of $200. Payment of the enrollment fee and first year’s investment is due with your application. Membership may be renewed by the Board of Directors upon evidence of continuing eligibility, payment of required fees and dues, and non-violation of the Corporation’s confidentiality and other policies in effect from time to time.

Each year, you will be asked to complete a membership update and report your average full-time equivalent employee count total for the year.

Please note: Payment of dues to Association is not deductible as charitable contributions for Federal Income Tax purposes. However, dues may be deducted as an ordinary and necessary business expense or deducted under other provisions of the IRS Code as recommended by your accountant.
