Only one person from each profession Classification is permitted to join Desert Elite RP. Membership Committees have final authority relating to classification conflicts.
Members must represent their primary occupation, not a part-time business.
The weekly meetings last for 90 minutes. Members need to arrive on time and stay for the entire meeting.
An individual may be a member of the Desert Elite RP, not any other professional networking group in the Coachella Valley.
Attendance is critical to the group. If a member cannot attend, you may send a substitute (not a member ) to the meeting. This will not count as an absence. A member is allowed three absences every six months (April through September and October through March). More than this and the member’s classification is subject to being opened by the chapter’s Leadership Team or Membership Committee.
Members are required to bring bona-fide referrals and/or visitors to their group.
Visitors may attend chapter meetings up to two times.
There are no leaves of absence except for medical leaves. A member may take up to eight weeks medical leave with the Membership Committee’s prior approval if their fees are pre-paid for that period of time and they attempt to have someone “fill in” during their leave.
It is the member’s responsibility to file a concern with the Membership Committee if a visitor “who submits an application in any way conflicts with their classification.” This should be done before the visitor is approved for membership. If there are no complaints, the Membership Committee will “assume their consent.”
Members who wish to change their classification must submit a new membership application and get approval from the Membership Committee for that classification change.
In case of problems with a member, Membership Committee may, at their sole discretion, put a member on probation relating to the member’s business practices or commitment to the chapter.
