The ONE Annual Membership Includes:
1. The ONE is $300 per year (WITH optional payment plans, a 10% veterans discount and FREE non-profit seat in each chapter).
2. The ONE encourages you to network inside and outside of your chapter, and believes you shouldn't be frowned upon for being members of multiple chapters OR organizations!
3. The ONE believes the more you network, the more you grow. Our primary goal is RELATIONSHIPS!! Without relationships, referrals will not come. We also allow the Chapter President AND current seat holder to make the decision to allow a collaborator into the chapter instead of The ONE dictating who is a good fit (we do not believe in competition).
4. The ONE’s attendance policy is 6 misses in 6 months. Substitutes do not count as misses.
5. The ONE is a fun networking community where members truly believe in each other, support each other, and care about each other. It does not feel like work when networking in The ONE.
6. The ONE does not believe in restrictions and regulations to keep our thumb pressed down on our members. No one knows what our members need for their businesses like they do themselves. If they feel they need to be in multiple organizations and hold multiple leadership positions, it is THEIR decision, not The ONE’s.
7. The ONE meetings are typically lunch meetings and maybe an occasional evening meeting. We want to have a good time or else it will be hard to build critical relationships. We don’t push a sign-in sheet either, so you don’t have to worry about getting spammed to join or frowned upon for not joining.
8. The ONE in Pensacola collects the $300 membership fee, processes the members’ application, and gives $200 back to the Chapter President(s). All membership fees collected stay not only in your city, but most stays within the chapter.
