Membership rates are based on the type of applicant:
- An individual who wishes to support the Alliance’s mission and efforts, $40 annually
- A non-profit organization that wishes to support the Alliance’s mission and efforts, $60 annually
- A business or practicing professional, $80 annually
- A business association having by-laws and/or recognized as an association by a government entity and consisting of five or more business members, $40 annually per business member
Many “chamber” organizations have a complicated dues structure based on type of business as well as number of employees and/or annual sales. The FCBA has structured its membership based only on type of applicant, charging additional fees only when members receive additional benefits because they have more employees or members, more locations, etc.
Memberships are aligned with the calendar year. A Meet & Greet event is typically held in November to kick-off the annual Membership Drive, followed by another Meet & Greet in the spring to wrap up the Membership Drive before printing of the annual Member Directory. Members joining after April 1st will not be included in the Member Directory, but will be included in the online listing of members.
