Why should I be a member? / Do I have to be a member?
Members can post directory listings, classified and banner ads, events, articles, etc. Non-members cannot post though they have access to the rating feature on the site. (All ratings are submitted pending approval by the site moderator.)
 
Additionally, members who place listings in the Business Directory get the benefit of having a web site with a lot of external links coming in to the site. This aids in giving any member with listings more control over creating a postive, personal internet presence.
 
You do not have to be a member to view the site. Anyone surfing the web may access and view this site.
 
Who can be a member?  What does it cost?
Anyone who agrees to and complies with the Terms of Service can be a member. To view the Terms of Service, click here.
