Benefits of Membership

Joining PCBL

  1. To join PCBL we ask that you attend two (2) meetings. We will pay for your breakfast. This allows you to learn about us and us about you.
  2. After your two meetings, we ask that if you wish to join that you fill out our online membership application. You can also use the PDF version (below).
  3. After the board has received your application a vote by all current members in good standing will vote on your joining the group. There is no guarantee to be voted in.
    1. If you are here at the time of voting you will immediately know.
    2. If you are not at the meeting for voting the President or Vice-President will contact you.
  4. If you are accepted you will receive an invoice from the treasurer and be asked to promptly pay your dues which are $250 per year.
    1. Dues may be prorated depending on when you join as annual billing happens in January of each new year.

When Membership Is Full

As an active business group of professionals, we strive to keep our group full based on what our by-laws allow. When we are full we encourage people to still reach out as when a spot opens we will notify those that have shown previous interest.
