NOTE: Your Level of Company Membership indicates the number of individuals that can register at the Member Registration Rate for all and any CMG events or Conferences. For example, a Basic Level Membership permits any two individuals to pay the Member Rate, not just the Nominated Representatives. Company Memberships are not eligible for Dues Discounts as outlined in the Individual Membership category. Employees must be employed by the same Company, but this does not include subsidiary or related companies.
