As the name implies, tiers are levels of benefits received for a specified dues amount. Under the traditional fair share dues model, the cost of membership is scaled according to the number of employees or revenue of the member, with occasional variations such as total deposits for bank members or the number of beds for hotel members. With tiered dues, benefits increase as the investment level increases, no matter how many employees are involved.
Lower tier benefits include listings in directories, web sites and mobile apps. Typical middle tier benefits include free email blast advertising, booth discounts at trade shows, or a profile of the CEO or company in chamber publications. Upper tier benefits usually include all the benefits of the lower tiers plus such things as invitations to select events like breakfast with the mayor or advocacy trips, customized research reports and free consulting services.
