After having been an Executive member in continuous good standing for at least 2 years, a member is eligible to transfer into the Entrepreneur membership category if the member serves in an entrepreneurial role within a start-up or consulting company, or other such self-employment that would not qualify for membership under the current published criteria.

Members transferring to this category are eligible to remain in the category at the specified reduced dues rate for a maximum of three (3) years. At that time, Entrepreneur members have the option of transferring to any other membership category for which they qualify.

Retired and Life Retired

A member is eligible to transfer into the categories of Retired/Life Retired Membership if the member is in good standing and fully retired from active business and/or from the field of education. Any Executive or Academic member may elect to purchase a Life Retired Membership upon full retirement.
