Chapters usually collect their dues on a quarterly schedule. Each chapter’s Board of Directors establishes their fee schedule.
There are NO paid chapter positions, LeTip chapters are not-for-profit groups and fees are based only on the actual chapter operating costs.
Chapter dues vary from chapter to chapter, and are used to fund chapter meetings, meals, business mixers and overhead expenses. These dues remain exclusively at the chapter level. Each chapter sets their own budget, of which chapter dues may average $125 to $150 per quarter (with a minimum of $40 per quarter).
The cost of a LeTip new membership is $390.00 USD for a US membership, or $390.00 CAD + HST for a Canadian membership, payable to LeTip International.
Annual membership renewal is lower than the initial membership fee and invoiced in your anniversary joining month.
It depends on the Chapter’s size. If the Chapter contains fewer than thirty members, then a minimum of three “NO” votes can permit the Chapter to deny membership. If there are more than thirty members, then a minimum of 10% of the membership (tallied from the beginning of the quarter) voting “NO” is required to permit the Chapter to deny membership.
Since LeTip chapters accept only one representative for any profession, it is not unusual to find your category filled. There are two options: you can ask for a search in another chapter or you can spearhead the start of a new chapter. In either case, contact your area representative (or call LeTip International HQ directly at 800-255-3847). We’ll do everything we can to help you find a chapter.
Each guest is required to attend two consecutive meetings before an application can be accepted. An inspection of an applicant’s place of business is a requirement of acceptance.
Yes! You absolutely can, in fact being a guest is part of the process of joining LeTip (see next FAQ question).
