Annual business membership is available to you, if you can answer “Yes” to all of the following questions:

  1. Is your business privately held?
  2. Does 50% or more of your ownership live in Whatcom County (or surrounding counties)?
  3. Is your business registered in the state of Washington, and does your corporate or national headquarters lie inside Whatcom, Skagit, San Juan or Island Counties?
  4. Do you have full autonomy to make your own independent decisions regarding your unique business and it’s purchasing, operations and distribution, as well as the name and look of your business?
  5. Do you pay all your own marketing, rent and other business expenses without assistance from, or payment to, a corporate headquarters?

If you answered “No” to any of the above questions, you’d probably best fit as a Partner of Sustainable Connections.
