Restricted to businesses that document significant efforts to purchase and highly promote locally grown products.
All members benefit from CISA’s aggressive advertising and marketing campaign and promotion of our trademarked slogan Be a Local Hero, Buy Locally Grown® and Local Hero logo.
CISA is again offering a sliding scale payment structure for membership fees in 2023 in a continued effort to make access to Local Hero membership more equitable. We invite you to determine the amount you are able to pay without compromising your operation.
The baseline cost for a bronze membership is $250. This cost covers staff time to maintain the Online Guide, execute marketing opportunities, “Buy Local” consumer advertising, the cost of the Local Hero POP starter kit, one-on-one CISA staff assistance, and overhead costs. If you can’t afford this, pay any amount between $75-$250. Please use the graphic and the benchmarks below to determine the price you will pay.
$75 covers the cost of the POP starter kit and networking opportunities.
$150 covers the staff time to maintain the online guide and to execute marketing opportunities as well as the cost of the Local Hero starter kit.
Those who are able to pay $251 or more help subsidize the cost of those who are unable to afford the baseline price. If you are able to pay more it’s greatly appreciated by CISA and your fellow members.
