Join today - you'll be glad you did!

Membership in the Center is open to family and privately-held businesses. Being a member-driven Center has been the foundation of our success.


"One of the best membership benefits is that events are open to anyone in our company, which enables us to send the most relevant person based on the topic. These sessions are extremely informative; in fact, one presentation showed us how to implement a cost-savings strategy that has paid for our membership 10 times over!" Chris Smith, The Fremont Company, member since 2003.

Our members will tell you we are the best, most cost-effective learning and networking opportunity. We have two membership categories - our traditional and friends of the center.

The traditional annual membership fee of $400 allows all family members and company employees to participate in events and networking opportunities at no charge.

The Friends of the Center membership is for companies that want to give a little extra to the Center. The cost is $1,500 and will include the company membership, dues for one affinity group participant, special recognition, an online company assessment, and an invitation to a special event just for Friends. And, $1,000 of your payment will be receipted as a gift and will be tax-deductible. Please contact us if you'd like more information on this membership category!
