Who can be a BLU member?
Any professional in the greater Lake Norman & Charlotte, NC area. This group is exclusive, however, only allowing three representatives per industry in each chapter. This is a good thing for you because there will only be three of you on the team and it allows us to offer each potential customer with options to work with in each industry. BLU does not discriminate in its membership practices based on race, ethnicity, sex, or religion. Nor does it tolerate these action by its members.
What does it cost?
Currently BLU has annual dues in the amount of $350. Each member is responsible for maintaining a credit card on file in their membership account and dues are billed upon acceptance in to BLU and will automatically be charged to the card on file each year on the anniversary of the members acceptance.
