Primary Requirements for Eligibility include ALL of the following:
C-Level or equivalent Senior-Level Executive experience and leadership.
Actively engaged in a business or actively pursuing opportunities.
Read and agree to membership requirements outlined in NCER Bylaws.
Provide current profile information required for identification and communication.
See the Membership Eligibility Guidelines to determine whether a prospective member is likely to be accepted for membership.
Once submitted, the nomination and selection process typically takes two to three weeks. Factors affecting the timeline include such things as Membership Committee schedule, interviews, discussions, communications, and the number of other nominations being considered at a particular time.
If accepted, the sponsor and candidate are notified by the Membership Committee and a letter of acceptance with additional information is sent from NCER to the candidate and sponsor. Acceptance by the candidate must be communicated to the Membership Committee Chair and membership becomes effective upon remittance of the initiation fee (currently $125) and the annual dues (currently $90).
In the event the nomination is not approved, the Membership Committee will advise the sponsor and the candidate of the decision. Candidates who are not approved initially may be re-nominated and reconsidered at a future date.
