1) Annual membership investment is calculated at the minimum of $50 per full time equivalent employees and management* in Cheyenne and Laramie County. For example, a company with 3 FTEs would calculate dues at 4 x $50 = $200. Minimum membership fee is $200.

2) Business members may choose to contribute an additional amount beyond the minimum FTE-based figure. Businesses are only obligated to pay dues for their first 200 FTE employees, but may pay more to further support local economic development efforts.

3) The following structure is used to determine business membership level.

In the case of any matters requiring a vote of the membership, each member shall have a number of votes determined by their membership dues (including any additional contributions made) during the current membership year according to the following:

Class 1: $100-999 – 1 vote
Class 2: $1,000-2,499 – 2 votes
Class 3: $2,500-4,999 – 3 votes
Class 4: $5,000 to Class 5 level – 4 votes
Class 5: determined by the Board of Directors – 5 votes

4) Class 5 membership earns an appointed member to the Cheyenne LEADS Board of Directors for the duration of the Class 5 membership. If your business is interested in this level of membership, we ask that you contact our office for additional information prior to submitting your application.

*Definition of full-time employee (FTE) or equivalent

A FTE represents one person who works primarily within Cheyenne or Laramie County 40 hours per week, 52 weeks a year. (For purposes of the calculation, "work" includes paid vacation and sick time.) Thus if you have 5 employees year-round and usually hire 4 temporary persons in the summer from June 1 to August 31, you only have 6 FTEs. Your dues would be 6 x $50 for a total of $300 annually.

**Businesses are only obligated to pay dues for their first 200 FTE employees, but may pay more to further support local economic development efforts.
