1. Associate Membership Offer

COLLABORATE! Business Network (CBN) offers the Associate Member an opportunity to experience the workings of a CBN Network Group for a trial period of ninety days.

The trial membership offers the Associate Member an opportunity to participate in all Network Group activities and to enjoy the benefits of a Network Member.

2. Associate Membership Requirements.

The trial membership affords existing Network Members an opportunity to evaluate the Associate Member’s contribution to the Network Group during the trial period.

The Associate Member is therefore expected to participate fully in Network Group activities and achieve the minimum Key Performance Targets with respect to;

  • Inviting: Two qualified guests invited per month.
  • Referrals: Two qualified referrals given per month
  • Attendance: Three out of four Network Group meetings.

3. Qualifying for Network Membership.

An Associate Member who meets the minimum requirements of the Key Performance Targets may apply for full Membership of the Network Group. Their application will be submitted for evaluation by the Member Committee.

4. The CBN 100 Club Challenge

The first 100 Associate Members to qualify as Network Members will become members of the CBN 100 Club and enjoy, among other VIP benefits, a 33% lifetime-discount on all future renewals for as long as they remain members of CBN; this benefit will extend to any region where CBN has a presence.

100 Club members who enrol at least five Associate Members during the Challenge Period, will qualify to become Founder Members in recognition of their contribution to the growth of the CBN community. In addition to other VIP benefits, Founder Members will qualify for free lifetime membership in any region where CBN has a presence.

5. The CBN 2x Guarantee

If, within 90 days of joining a CBN Network Group, the Associate Member does not achieve a measurable benefit at least 2x the Membership Fee, Shaun Lindbergh will refund the Membership Fee to the Associate Member (Reasonable “Use-it–or-Lose-it” T&C’s apply, including meeting the minimum key performance targets.)
