We try to anticipate questions you might have about DBA Membership and provide the answers here. If you need additional information please send an email to Guy Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org .
What is the format of the meeting?
In each meeting both the members and the guests will have an opportunity to introduce themselves and their businesses. Generally, a member will present a short program highlighting his/her business. However, on occasion, a guest speaker will be invited to present a program that is germaine to business owners.
Members will also be given the opportunity to recognize the business and leads that they have given and/or received within the association.
Is there a cost for the meeting?
If a guest is a potential candidate for membership, there is no charge for attending the first 2 meetings.
How do I become a member?
A guest that has a business that is not in conflict with an existing member may apply for membership after attending 2 meetings. Upon submission of an application, the DBA membership committee will review the application and then make a recommendation to the DBA Board of Directors.
The new member is accepted upon approval by the Board of Directors. A check payable to DBA in the amount of $150.00 must be submitted with the application. The check will be returned if the application is not approved.
After I become a member what are my responsibilities?
Each member is required to attend the weekly meetings. It is a fact that the extent of active participation has a direct correlation to the amount of business a member receives.
Each member is required to pay monthly dues of $75.00 which covers the cost of the weekly breakfast meeting and DBA’s administrative expenses.
