  • Trustegrity does not provide profession exclusivity.  Members in the same profession may have unique areas of specialty. We believe that quality groups do include overlap between professions and that some of the best referrals come from members in the same profession.  Although individual members may offer a broad range of services or specialty areas, each members should join under one area of specialty.  Members are welcomed to communicate concerns about specialty conflict to Trustegrity management. Membership acceptance is ultimately the decision of Trustegrity, not the individual member.

Referrals do not have to be specific to the group you belong to but can be given for any group. Please note that all guests should be approved and registered before coming to a meeting. Trustegrity has the option to approve or not approve a member application. Applications are not automatically approved. Member referral rewards are credited toward membership dues.
