MEMBERSHIP POLICY

The Tulsa Regional Chamber is a membership organization serving Northeastern Oklahoma and the Tulsa MSA. It has over 2,200 members. The following document reflects the Chamber's Membership policies, which are subject to change with Board approval.

Chamber Membership Terms
The Chamber is an Oklahoma nonprofit corporation that is qualified under Section 501(c)(6) of the Internal Revenue Code. Active membership in this corporation shall be open to any person, association, partnership, corporation, Limited Liability Company or other entity having an interest in the mission and purposes of the Chamber. A prospective new member shall comply with those requirements for admission to membership, including the payment of dues that may be established from time to time by the Chamber's Board of Directors.

Admission of Members
Prospective members are required to pay Chamber membership dues in full at the time of application. Membership dues cover a 12 month membership and are renewable each calendar year. Membership dues are based on employee count except in cases of full-service hotels and financial institutions (banks, credit unions) which are based on the following formula:

  • Hotels dues based on: Number of rooms, square footage of banquet space
  • Banks dues based on: Total deposits

Dues, which are subject to change in price and formula, are payable in advance and are continuous until cancelled in writing in advance of the due date.

There may be opportunities for members/prospective members to purchase more benefits, sponsorships or that focus on specific services or initiatives.

Chamber membership dues may be deductible for Federal income tax purposes as an ordinary and necessary business expense (not as a charitable contribution). However, members should consult their own tax advisors for specific tax information and advice.

Honorary Members
Honorary membership in the Chamber may be conferred by the Board of Directors upon persons who or entities that have distinguished themselves in public or business affairs or have been of special service to the Chamber and its mission and purposes. Such honorary membership shall be granted based on the unique circumstances of each relationship. Honorary members shall have all the rights and privileges of active members but shall not be required to pay dues.

Termination of Membership
The Chamber reserves the right to deny membership, or cancel membership, if the Executive Committee, upon a vote of two-thirds of its members, determines in its sole discretion that a member poses a challenge to the Chamber achieving its mission, or is believed to be incongruent with the values of the Chamber.

Non-Payment of Dues
Chamber members who do not pay membership dues within 90 days of the due date may have their membership cancelled. In any such case, the Chamber will notify the member of the cancellation, which shall require no further action by the Chamber.

Privacy Statement
The Chamber is committed to protecting the privacy of members' personal information. This commitment applies with respect to information that we collect from visitors to the Chamber's website, located at www.tulsachamber.com, and to information we collect in order to process commercial transactions initiated by customers on our Web site (including the purchasing or renewing of memberships online).
