Types of Membership

Voting Member

The agency is the member, and the voting member is the chief executive officer or his/her designee.

Associate Member

For smaller (3 person or less) for profit businesses we offer the associate membership ($250). These are typically independent consultants or suppliers of products or services that promote, support, and/or are utilized by the nonprofit sector

Individual Member

We encourage chief executive officers who were former members of the Leadership Council that have retired or are in between jobs, have a continuing interest in goals of the Leadership Council, and wish to participate in consideration of common interests to become an individual member.  Former chief executive officers who are transitioning to the area are also eligible.  (Retired Executives might also be interested in our LEADER TO LEADER Mentoring Program).
