What do I gain from membership?
Only active members are considered for contract jobs. They also receive quarterly compli-ance checks that help them remain sharp in business. Members share knowledge and in-dustry best practices, updates on appropriate training programs, publicity, free assessment & feedback for optimal business practices including operations and bookkeeping analysis and more. The alliance also creates the environment for referrals amongst members while expanding individual professional network.

What if I don’t find it beneficial?
There are no ‘golden handcuffs’ as a member of Unite Systems. Members are free to exit at anytime by a simple notification letter or email. Once the notification is received, the mem-ber is placed in an inactive status. Should an inactive member wish to re-activate their status at a later time, all past dues from the time of deactivation would need to be settled first.
