The Pinnacle Society only accepts into its membership those persons who:
- Place candidates permanently on a contingency or contingency/retainer basis for a fee;
- Have a minimum of five years of experience as a Sales Counselor/Manager/Owner in the permanent contingency or retainer placement business. Non-owners must be nominated for Pinnacle Society membership by his/her owner or by a Pinnacle Society member; and,
- Have generated cash-in greater than $400,000 annually for three of the five most recent sales years.
Please note the above requirements are non-negotiable and all applicants will be required to provide business reference and proof of billings.
Dues for the Pinnacle Society are $950 per year. Pinnacle is a participatory society. The bylaws carry an attendance requirement that does not mandate attendance at all meetings but the greatest mutual value is to have the members attend as often as possible. Therefore, members are required to attend a certain number of our semi-annual meetings in April and October. The cost of each conference (currently also around $750) is not included in the membership fee.
The Application Process
After submitting your Membership Application, it will be reviewed by the membership committee. Subsequently, you will be contacted by a representative from our membership committee to obtain business references and verification of your billing numbers. After your information has been verified and it meets our membership qualifications, you will be invited to attend, [at your own expense], the Friday and Saturday sessions of our next semi-annual meeting. You will be expected to be an active participant in the meeting and at the end of the meeting, the membership committee will vote on your acceptance. Upon acceptance, you will be invoiced for the annual membership fee of $950.
