How do I choose a membership level?
First, for-profit companies and businesses should use the Corporate Rates. Government agencies, municipalities, educational institutions, and nonprofit organizations should use the Government/Nonprofit Rates.
Then, add up all the professional, full-time staff your company employs in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New Hampshire. Use this number to find the membership level for your company.
