How much does it cost to join a business networking group? 

An annual networking group membership can range from $15 to $1000 depending on the group and what’s in their fee. For instance: If your group meets at a restaurant are you responsible for your meals and refreshment? Are you penalized if you miss an event?  Are you compensated for recruiting new members? Since no more that 50% of your annual marketing budget should be spent on one networking group, these numbers are vital in order to make sure you don't get in over your head.
