Membership Committee


Mission: Members are the life blood of Beacon. The purpose of the Membership Committee is to build Beacon by building membership.  We do this, first, by putting in place effective processes and programs to attract, recruit, and screen potential members, and, second, by engaging and retaining members. 


- Help Beacon fulfill its mission by ensuring that Beacon members are high-caliber executive leaders who embrace Beacon’s unique culture of giving more in value than they take in payment.


Help Beacon members...

     - Navigate the organization and get a high return on their membership investment

     - Achieve their own networking goals.

Our Key Functions:

- Develop membership criteria to ensure high standards for experience and professionalism across Beacon via our recruiting, referral and interview processes.
