Associate Members (those who live and work 50-plus miles from Boston) pay annual dues of $150 after the first year of membership as a Regular Member. The Boston Club bills for membership dues twice a year, in July and January. New members joining during the year are billed for dues pro rated to the end of the Club’s fiscal year (June 30).

Process

The application process begins with sponsorship by a current member, who serves as an advisor and reference. Prospective members should apply online. After you submit your application, your sponsor will submit her recommendation. If you are interested in applying to become a member, but do not have a connection to the Club to serve as your sponsor, please reach out to us at membership@thebostonclub.com for additional information.  Our goal is to help facilitate the application process for all who are interested in joining the Club. We would welcome the opportunity meet with you and to work with you on the application process.

We encourage prospective members to apply online. After your application is submitted, your sponsor will submit her recommendation. You will receive an acknowledgement of receipt of your application from the Membership Committee, which will review your application and then either contact you for more information or recommend your application to the Board. If approved, you will be assigned an Ambassador – another Club member who wants your onboarding experience to be fun and successful.

Once you are approved for membership and pay your initiation fee and pro-rated annual membership dues, you will be contacted by your Ambassador, who will answer any questions you may have and let you know about upcoming New Member events, as well as other Club events.

If you are a member interested in sponsoring a new member, please first assess the viability of her candidacy by looking at the Member Criteria section. Once the candidate applies for membership, you will be asked to complete a sponsor recommendation form. When a candidate has been approved, you will receive a formal notification. She will be welcomed into the Club by an Ambassador and introduced to programs tailored toward new members.
