Q: Do I have to pay dues?
A: You do not have to pay dues to participate in the Slack channel or listserve. However, you do need to pay dues to participate in BDX programming and networking events.
There are three membership classes and accompanying dues from each:
Digital consulting firms, which will be defined as consultants/firms that provide digital consulting services to Democratic and progressive groups. A consulting firm membership means you can add all of your firm staffers to BDX. Digital firms will pay a sliding scale depending on their size starting at $250 up to $1,000.
Individuals, who are staffers performing digital services in-house at Democratic and progressive organizations. Individuals at consulting firms can pay the single membership dues for themselves. Individuals pay $50 for membership, exceptions can be made on a case by case basis.
Vendors, which are vendors who sell advertising or provide services to the firms and organizations. Vendors pay $1,000/year.
