Are You Eligible?
Membership Eligibility Guidelines: Membership is available to for-profit and nonprofit businesses and employers. NJBIA membership dues are based upon all full-time equivalent employees working in New Jersey. Both full-time and part-time employees, including owners and partners, must be included when calculating the full-time equivalent. All subsidiaries, divisions, branches, etc. located in New Jersey must be included with the application.
Membership is also available to New Jersey-based associations and trade groups, with NJBIA dues based on the number of full-time equivalent paid employees. NJBIA membership benefits, including eligibility to apply for insurance through New Jersey Manufacturers Insurance Group (NJM), are available only to the paid staff of the association or trade group.
State and local entities that derive most of their income from fees are eligible for membership.
Annual membership dues cover a 12-month period, beginning with the month the membership application is approved. There will be no refund of any part of an employer’s dues because of termination of membership during the 12-month period.
Out-of-state employers having a common interest with New Jersey employers regarding New Jersey laws and commerce may apply for an Associate Membership. Please call NJBIA’s Membership Department for additional information and the Associate Membership dues schedule
