The Primary Contact for the membership is the person that manages the membership record for the company. The Primary Contact is responsible for identifying the company's Benefit Recipients and has the ability to vote for, and be elected to serve on, the Advisory Council for the membership section that the business has identified as their primary role in the industry. Benefit Recipients can only be modified within the first 30 days of the membership term; they cannot be changed or removed until the membership is renewed.
