Answering your questions

Is there a membership fee?

Yes, but we’ve kept it reasonable. Every member pays $60 bi-annually. Almost all members get an ROI significantly higher than that based on the referrals and new business brought in by being a group member.

How can I apply for membership?

To join Hudson Connections, start by attending one of our meetings to see if it's a good fit. Afterward, we'll provide you with a straightforward application form. Our leadership team will then review your submission and notify you of your membership status. If you have any questions, please reach out—we'd love to have you as a member!

What kind of events can I expect as a member?

On top of the weekly meetings, Hudson Connections members have the option to attend social gatherings, where you'll have the chance to meet fellow members in a casual, relaxed setting, and visitor days where we bring in local experts. They share their knowledge, experiences, and insights, giving you a chance to learn from the best right here in Hudson County.

How does the referral system work?

Hudson Connections uses a point system to encourage active participation and group success. Members earn points by referring potential clients, closing deals from group referrals, and connecting one-on-one with fellow members. Each member has a point target for the fiscal quarter. This system keeps everyone engaged and helps the group flourish.
