Annual Dues for business members, including prospective charter schools, are $500. Sponsorships and advertising go towards this $500. For Business members,
- You’ll get first notice and discounted rates at any conference or workshop
- You’ll receive our “Member Seal” which you can include on your website or emails to Charter Schools to show your support
- You’ll get a quarter page ad in our magazine
- You’ll receive our e-newsletter
- Your logo, website and description of your company will be listed on our website under a specific industry related category
- Your logo will be displayed on e-newsletters sent to Charter Schools
Most importantly, we work with each business member proactively to form a plan that works for you and the schools. This goes way beyond just listing a logo and forgetting about you! Our Executive Director owned and managed a consulting and CPA firm for many years and we understand that serving the member schools is a two-way street and your investment in NC charters has to provide results for you too!
Annual Dues are assessed by the size of your charter school and are for a one year membership. A school applicant or awardee can be a business member until it begins its first year and then must pay “school dues”.
