Membership dues are based on the number of producers in your agency. Include all producers, regardless of W-2 or 1099 status. If your agency doesn’t use a traditional producer model, add up the percent of time each employee spends quoting and placing business, and include one producer each time you reach 100 percent. For example, if three employees spend one-third of their time quoting and placing business, that equals one producer. Please note, you should have at least one producer per office location.
