BAWE membership criteria

Whilst BAWE Scotland is keen to expand membership we are governed by BAWE’s Code of Governance on membership criteria as follows. This is why membership is by invitation only to keep track of the balance of members and make networking and meetings relevant for our members.

Entrepreneurs

80% of members are Entrepreneurs, business owners who employ staff directly or indirectly (engage in projects which contract out works to others), have their own money at risk in their business, and a turnover of over £100K and which have been operating for at least 3 years.

This category includes Associate Directors in in the 3rd sector also.

We welcome Charitable or 3rd sector Directors also as an Associate member which falls under the Entrepreneurs section. The percentages are roughly adhered to as the group grows in the UK but are placed on us by our FCEM membership, allowing us access to hundreds of international meetings and groups.

Corporate Directors

10% of members can be Corporate Directors from any organization, with the exception of Government.

New Starts

10 % of members can be New starts, business owners where the business is less than 2 years old but which can demonstrate the potential to grow and employ staff.

Unsure if BAWE is the right group for you?

Attend two BAWE meetings as a guest

You are most welcome to attend two BAWE meetings as a guest.

Due to the strict rules of criteria set by BAWE UK membership is subject to approval by the committee but should be straight forward if you fit our membership criteria above.

We look forward to welcoming you to BAWE. Please do not hesitate to contact Tanya or Nadin  for any further information. Use the below contact form and we will get back to you ASAP.

The annual membership fee is £170.00 for Entrepreneurs, £275 for Corporate Directors and £85 for Start-ups (in the first 3 years of incorporation). 3rd sector or Associate membership is the same level as Entrepreneur membership.
