Charter members of WISE, once acceptance is granted, have the right to deliver dispute and ethics handling services on business-related matters in their communities. They also gain the right to direct the administration and expansion of the local WISE membership. They receive direct assistance from WISE in the suggested handling of ethics matters as well as the expansion and development of local membership activities. To further assist them, WISE provides Charter members with training manuals and issues to help guide them in their duties. Charter Committees may charge fees for services delivered to the WISE membership once duly licensed. Special listings in the WISE International Business Directory distinguish Charter members as do a wide range of insignia including a Charter Membership pin, card, wall plaque and a certificate. Charter members also have access to the member-only section of the Charter Committee website.
