Current HUBZone certification by the SBA is required for Regular Council membership.  Companies that join or renew as Regular members but are not HUBZone-certified will automatically be converted to Associate membership and their renewal dates will be adjusted to reflect the dues amounts paid.

Membership Categories & Annual Dues


Companies that have been certified as HUBZone contractors by the U.S. Small Business Administration are eligible to be regular members.  Regular members are entitled to vote on matters that come before the Council membership and may have employees serve as directors of the Council.  Regular members must maintain HUBZone certification to remain members of the Council.  Regular membership is offered in categories based on gross sales volume.


Non-HUBZone small businesses, including those in the process of obtaining HUBZone certification, may become associate members of the Council.  If a company becomes HUBZone-certified during its Associate Membership term, its status can be upgraded to Regular Membership.  Associate members have no voting rights and may not hold a Council office but they receive all other benefits of Council membership.  Associate member categories and annual dues are listed in the table below. 

Trade associations, community development corporations, economic development agencies, non-profit organizations, and government employees are also eligible for membership, which provides subscriptions to Council publications, members-only website access, and discounted Annual Meeting and Conference Registrations. 


PRIMES & LARGE BUSINESS MEMBERSHIP (an Associate Membership category)

Prime contractors and large businesses receive special benefits. 

  • Posting capability for sources sought notices, RFPs, and subcontracting offers on the Classified Opportunities Board
  • Complimentary consultations to develop HUBZone subcontracting strategies
  • Complimentary participation with priority placement in Council match-making events
  • Complimentary table-top exhibit space at National HUBZone Conferences (includes one free full-conference registration)
  • Complimentary event postings on Council website calendar


Corporate Sponsorship provides increased exposure, including advertisements in Council publications and sponsorship of sessions at the Council's Annual Meeting and Conference.

Dues payments, contributions, and gifts are not tax deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes; however, they may be deductible as ordinary and necessary business expenses. Five percent (5%) of membership dues is allocated for lobbying-related activities and therefore is non-deductible as a business expense for federal income tax purposes. (Subject to change.) [IRC 162(e) and 6033(e)].

The Council accepts members regardless of race, creed, sex, color,
physical disability, and national or ethnic origin.
