General LeTip Questions

Why shouldn’t I just join my Chamber of Commerce?

Actually, LeTip believes that you should be a member of both your Chamber and LeTip. Your Chamber of Commerce is good for your business and your community. The difference between a Chamber and your LeTip Chapter is exclusivity. You “own” your category when you join LeTip and your competition is excluded within your chapter. Chambers, by their very nature, exist by being inclusive.

What really makes LeTip work?

You do! LeTip teaches you how to network smarter and gives you the structure from which to grow. But it is the chapter as a whole that fuels the success of each member. Rather than just you selling on your own; with LeTip, you have a sales force of professional business people bringing you qualified leads. Remember, referrals are made based on trust and solid relationships. That’s why it is important to attend meetings and build those relationships so your chapter will get to know you, just as you’ll get to know them.

How soon will I see financial reward?

LeTip is not a get rich fast scheme. It takes time to earn the trust of your chapter members, to become adept in the networking arena, to learn to promote yourself and your business with ease. If you expect instant reward, LeTip is not for you. If you want to build long-standing business relationships that will earn you qualified referrals for years to come, then LeTip is for you.

What does LeTip expect of me?

LeTip expects you to attend weekly meetings to build relationships. LeTip expects you to pass, on average, one qualified referral every week. LeTip expects you to be ethical, professional and experienced in your line of work. LeTip expects you to help all your members to be successful and they are expected to do the same for you.

How do I know LeTip will work for me?

LeTip will work for you… if you work LeTip. Simply follow the program. It has worked for thousands upon thousands of business people. To be successful in LeTip – or in any endeavor – requires perseverance and the universal understanding that you must give before you receive. There is much to be said about “All for one and one for all!”

What is LeTip?

LeTip International is The Premier Professional Leads Organization!

LeTip International is the world’s largest, privately owned, professional business leads organization. Since 1978, LeTip programs have helped over 120,000 members, throughout the United States and Canada, build business success through personal referrals.

LeTip International’s structure set the standard in the word-of-mouth referral industry. Members are known for their professionalism, dedication,
and loyalty to one another, and to the LeTip Program.

LeTip Chapters meet weekly to exchange qualified leads, build solid business relationships,develop strong presentation skills and become proficient networkers.

Only one representative of any given profession is accepted into a chapter, and members are chosen for their occupational expertise.

What makes LeTip different than any other leads group?

LeTip is the original business leads networking group. In 1978 we set the standard by developing a program that embraced both businesswomen and businessmen. We adhere to the program format, require our members to be committed, expect excellence and reject mediocrity. We’re snappy, successful and honored by the incredibly talented and professional members who are the true spirit of LeTip.

What can I expect LeTip to do for me?

You can expect LeTip to provide the structure and the guidance of the LeTip program. You can expect your Area Representative to train your chapter members in leadership and presentation skills. You can expect all the necessary materials to run a chapter to be provided without charge. You can expect annual training in the newest networking and chapter building techniques for your Board Members and Committee Chairs. You can expect your category to be protected. You can expect our full time staff in our corporate office to assist you when necessary.

Questions About Joining

Who can I call if I have more questions?

If you would like more info, please contact a LeTip representative in your area, or call our headquarters at (800)-255-3847.

When are my dues required to be paid?

Chapters usually collect their dues on a quarterly schedule. Each chapter’s Board of Directors establishes their fee schedule.

There are NO paid chapter positions, LeTip chapters are not-for-profit groups and fees are based only on the actual chapter operating costs.

How much are chapter dues?

Chapter dues vary from chapter to chapter, and are used to fund chapter meetings, meals, business mixers and overhead expenses. These dues remain exclusively at the chapter level. Each chapter sets their own budget, of which chapter dues may average $125 to $150 per quarter (with a minimum of $40 per quarter).

How much does it cost to join LeTip?

The cost of a LeTip new membership is $430.00 USD for a US membership, or $430.00 USD (at current currency conversion rate) + HST for a Canadian membership, payable to LeTip International.

Annual membership renewal is lower than the initial membership fee and invoiced in your anniversary joining month.

How many votes are required for acceptance into the Chapter?

It depends on the Chapter’s size. If the Chapter contains fewer than thirty members, then a minimum of three “NO” votes can permit the Chapter to deny membership. If there are more than thirty members, then a minimum of 10% of the membership (tallied from the beginning of the quarter) voting “NO” is required to permit the Chapter to deny membership.

What if my category is filled?

Since LeTip chapters accept only one representative for any profession, it is not unusual to find your category filled. There are two options: you can ask for a search in another chapter or you can spearhead the start of a new chapter. In either case, contact your area representative (or call LeTip International HQ directly at 800-255-3847). We’ll do everything we can to help you find a chapter.

How many meetings must I attend before I can join?

Each guest is required to attend two consecutive meetings before an application can be accepted. An inspection of an applicant’s place of business is a requirement of acceptance.

Can I visit a LeTip chapter as a guest?

Yes! You absolutely can, in fact being a guest is part of the process of joining LeTip (see next FAQ question).
