How To Join LeTip

STEP
1

Find a Chapter

Begin your LeTip journey by searching for a chapter in your local market, using the “Find A Chapter” feature on this page.  Or you can contact us by phone or email, and we will help you find the closest chapter to your business.

Reach out and Get Invited

Next, reach out to one of the local chapter officers to see if your business category is open.  If your category is open, you will be invited to attend two meetings.

Attend Two Meetings

You can apply for membership at any time, but you will need to attend two consecutive meetings with the chapter prior to their voting on your membership.  An officer of the inviting chapter will email you the application.  Of course, you may already know a member of your local LeTip chapter who has been campaigning you to join.  In that case, an invitation and two meetings later and you’re ready to apply for membership.

Bond with the Chapter and Talk to the Membership Chair

Each chapter has a membership chair who can share with you the commitment that is expected from every LeTip member.  Since potential new members are voted in, it is important for you to bond with chapter members during your two visits, letting them know you are committed to the mission and goals of LeTip.

Apply for Membership and Get Inspected

Before the vote, you will get a visit from the Chapter’s inspector who will learn more about your business and then report back to the chapter before the formal vote.

Here are some questions frequently asked 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.

How much does it cost to join?

The cost of a LeTip new membership is $440.00 USD for a US membership, or $440.00 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. Chapters also charge a one time fee to own your seat in the chapter with $40 being the minimum for this charge.

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 and monthly dues to cover expenses with a minimum of $40 per quarter.

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.
