Dues Structure

PEP’s annual membership dues are based on the number of employees. Generally, this will be the number of local full-time employees; however, if your employee base fluctuates or is weighted by part-time employees, please use an average number of employees. Dues are payable on a calendar year basis and are due when invoiced. Your invoices will be forwarded to you upon approval of your membership application. Applications are reviewed by the Board of Directors at their monthly meeting.

We meet and often exceed environmental regulations, but the community may not always know that. Being active in PEP helps us communicate our beliefs and principles-and our efforts to support the environment-both to our employees and the community.
