Since Brandywine Business Network doesn't collect dues, we use attendance to determine membership.
Perfect attendance is not required.
That said, if a member misses 4 consecutive meetings their membership / business category becomes officially open to prospective members.
If a member knows they are going to miss the next 4 meetings due to personal reasons, they are can send an email mentioning the planned absence and their membership and business category can be maintained until their agreed upon return.
There are instances where the meeting is cancelled due to weather occurrences or a major holiday lands on a Tuesday. In those situations, the prospective member's attendance count is not affected.
