Who? Your company where consultant services, including education and training, compliance, engineering, and research and development, generates greater than 50% of the revenue.
NOTE – A company providing services for the physical installation, maintenance, repair, testing, or physical transportation of goods or equipment is classified as an Active member.
What? Related Annual Revenue includes both (1) the annual dollar volume for the most recent year from fees or consulting services to, or in relation to, the industry, including education and training, compliance, engineering, and research and development; and (2) related annual revenues of the consultant’s industry clients that are not CGA members. For the purposes of this policy, the consultant’s fiscal year end shall be used to determine the clients’ CGA membership status.
EXAMPLE: Assuming that a client is not a CGA member for the year 2018, and the consultant works for the client in year 2018, then the consultant’s 2019 dues are based on the consultant’s 2018 revenues plus the client’s revenue from 2017 (the dues the client would have paid if they would have been a member in the year of the consultant’s work).
Consulting arrangements covering a period greater than 60 days must include the industry-related revenue of the non-CGA member client company, its parent corporation, and any other industry-related subsidiaries of the parent corporation on a pro-rated basis according to the following schedule:
|Duration of Consulting Agreement (days)1
||Percentage of Non-CGA Member Client Revenues to Include in Determining Related Annual Revenue
|0 – 59
|60 – 89
|90 – 179
|180 – 269
|270 – 366
|1 Duration is the difference from the start date to the finish date, not the number of days contracted. If multiple contracts are made with the same company (or related companies), the duration will be considered as the start date from the first contract to the end date of the last contract covering the calendar year. If no contract, written or verbal, exists between the consultant and the client, hence no term of engagement and no obligation of future work exists between the parties, the total days of such ad hoc work by the consultant shall be considered the duration for the above chart.
Where? From or into the United States or Canada.
When? The most recent fiscal year.
How? Multiply your Related Annual Revenue (defined above) by 0.016513947625% and round up to the nearest whole dollar (USD). Consultant membership dues are subject to a minimum of $2,990.
