- Questions 1 – 7: These questions are used by Biz to Biz Network, Inc. to gain demographic information on our membership. Thank you for taking the time to respond.
- Business Designation: Each member must select a primary business designation. This is defined as an area of expertise, area of license, or SIC code. When a business utilizes several areas of license, expertise or SIC codes they must select their primary area of business and represent that within the Chapter at a non-compete level. Members are also able to list a secondary product or service on the application (See Secondary Product or Service). Each member may only represent one business entity. If a member owns more than one business they can have the second business join the Chapter; however, another person must be in attendance to represent that business as a primary member. In this situation, these two members would not be allowed to act as a substitute for the other.
- Secondary Product or Service: A secondary product or service can be represented through your membership until another member joins and that secondary product or service becomes their primary business designation.
- Membership Fee/Dues: It is important to submit the application and all fees with your application. The initial payment for membership includes an application fee of $175.00 and an annual membership fee of $345.00 – $599.00 depending on the membership plan chosen. Both application fee and initial payment are required to secure your business designation in the Chapter.
- Membership Owner: It is important to note that the entity that pays for the membership, owns the membership. If a member pays for the membership and changes jobs – they have the opportunity to stay in the Chapter if their new business designation is available, request a transfer to another Chapter, be placed on a waiting list for the next available Chapter, or be a part of a Now Forming Chapter. If their employer owns the membership and the member no longer works for this employer, the employer has 2 weeks to replace the primary attending member. If the replacement does not occur, membership is forfeited.
