Below is the usual meetup structure, however changes may be made due to a variety of circumstances, such as the number of people, venue modifications, or other circumstances.
Here is our usual format for a lunch meetup:
Please note: As a guest, you can visit up to 3x before becoming a member!
The first rule of Connect Now is be positive! Attend with a mindset of reciprocity. Connect Now events have been created for the mutual benefit of all members. It’s the place to get connected, and be inspired!
Please note that each person is responsible for paying their lunch bill to the restaurant. The meetup fee goes towards the maintenance, technical costs, administration, and promotional activities of the group. They are not transferable or refundable.
As a member and attendee, you will experience a warm and welcoming, yet well organized and professional environment. Be prepared to share your business story in a 30 Second Power Introduction (elevator speech) speed round format. Bring lots of business cards! Get connected, learn, and have fun!
The purpose of the group goes beyond exchanging referrals. It’s all about making meaningful connections, building long lasting business relationships, collaborating with other like-minded business owners and managers, and enriching the community.
