What is a typical Connection Club meeting like?

A typical Connection Club meeting is an hour long. The first portion is spent networking with other participants and practicing your ":30 second promotion." Time is then allotted to exchange leads and discuss closed business and success stories, and review upcoming Chamber activities. Members are encouraged to visit other members businesses and report to the group what they learned. Meals and coffee are available at extra cost.

What is a ":30 second promotion?"

A :30 second promotion is an introduction of yourself and the company, the benefits you provide your clients, iteration of your tagline or memorable descriptor, and a statement of the optimum leads and lead sources you are currently seeking for your company. This is sometimes referred to as your elevator speech--what would you tell someone about your business while riding between floors on an elevator.
