Notably members must be Decision Makers (entrepreneurs, proprietors, partners, directors, general managers and senior level management). The Committee reserves the right to ensure potential members meet the criteria.

Membership runs from 1st January to 31st December each year and an annual fee of Dirhams 400/- (pro rate fee Dirhams 200) is paid by members. Fees are due each year on 1st January. This covers administration and telecommunications charges, speaker's gifts and the upkeep of the official website. Should you join from the middle of a financial year onwards, a pro rata fee of Dhs 200/- will be payable.

How to Apply

New members should be introduced or nominated by a current paid-up member or Committee Member and can apply to join by completing the application form and profile online. If you are new to Dubai and do not know anyone indicate this in the nomination field.
