Solving for the pH of a Compound

Question: What is the pH of 0.097 M of triethylammonium chloride (CH3CH2)3 NHCL? I know that in order to solve this i need to find the Kb, which is equal to Kw/Ka, I know that Kw = 1E-14, but I do not know which Ka to use? Once i know the Kb, i will be able to solve this problem and find the pH, i just need help finding the a
