JOIN EO PORTLAND
EO membership is exclusively for entrepreneurs.
APPLICATION PROCESS OVERVIEW
Prospective members must first apply to the chapter to ensure they meet the Entrepreneurs’ Organization membership criteria. You can begin an application below or find out more by speaking to Board Membership Chair Kat Magner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you have completed your application form, the Membership Chairs will then contact you for an interview and site visit,
and make a decision on your application. You will also be required to submit a revenue verification form signed
by your CPA and complete a basic background check.
EO Portland accepts new members three times per year. The next application deadline is February 3, 2020.
Within your first three months, you will receive an Orientation, including a chance to meet fellow members in a casual social setting,
as well as complete a Forum Training so that you may be placed in an EO Forum.
TEST drive the eo experience
The Test Drive is a short event that provides a mock Forum exercise to illustrate the value of EO to business owners like you. We also
invite current EO Members to share personal experiences and business lessons with you in an honest, no-obligation Q&A, and we
will explain the main benefits of membership. The Test Drive will be followed by a networking reception, where you can meet
current members and other nominees. We’ll also have a few other surprises up our sleeves that you won’t want to miss.
There is no cost associated with attending if you are a qualified prospective member,
nor is there any obligation to join EO.
