In order to join, a business must meet the following membership requirements:

  • The business is privately held (not publicly traded).
  • The business is headquartered in Broome County.
  • The business is able to make independent decisions and control its own signage.
  • At least 50% of the businesses's owners are local to Broome County.
  • The business is supportive of long-term sustainability in our region!

We welcome businesses from every industry! No business is too small!

Almost meet these requirements, but not quite? Please contact us. Depending on the details, we may be able to put your case before our advisory board for a decision. 

Definitely don't meet these requirements, but still want to help? We might be able to welcome you as an anchor.

What if I want more marketing materials or event tickets than my level includes? Great question! You are always welcome to contribute at a higher level if you would like more buttons, window decals, "Be Local" cards or event tickets. You are also able to purchase extra marketing materials through our online store, and you can always purchase extra tickets for events! That said, if you think you will want extra stuff, contributing at a higher membership level will be a better deal.

What if I want to bring all of my employees to an event? If you have more employees than tickets included per event, you can have extra employees register as individual members (free event tickets are also included in individual memberships - and we have an employee discount)! Alternatively, you can just have any interested employees buy separate tickets for the event.
