Fair Share Dues - The Fair Share (traditional) dues structure is based on business size where each member business pays dues based on the number of full-time equivalent employees. With the Fair Share dues structure, there is usually a base fee applied first, then an investment formula applied (number of employees multiplied by a base fee), and an administrative processing fee may be applied additionally. Investment formulas identify the base dues amount from the given schedule, then add in the fees for number of employees per industry.
