This month BizNets
Networking Connection looks at
do a lot of networking for the magazine, and belong to
many networking groups. I generally go to 3 to 4 meetings
a week. One group that I think is really great is the
Santa Clarita Valley Chamber Of Commerce.
At one time in the Santa Clarita Valley their were 4 different chambers with a few members here and their, and then they all merged into one big chamber covering the entire valley, and the membership soared.
With 7000 Businesses including (Home Based Businesses) in the valley, this chamber has a whopping 1300 members, 65% of which are 20 to 30 year old go getters with great attitudes to boot.
A staple of this chamber is that 40% of the members only do business with other members
|Most chamber mixers are fun, but everyone is always trying to sell you something and dont really care about what you do. This chamber is different! Their philosophy is that their members are the other members sales team, and they really care about what you do. What a change from being sold something every time you show up! And the mixers are great to.|
As a chamber I think that this I one of the best. The low pressure and family like atmosphere makes this one a winner.
