LEARN Groups

Leads Exchange And Referral Network (LEARN) Groups




The Regional Chamber’s Networking Groups!

Leads Exchange and Referral Network (LEARN) Groups allow professionals to meet once per week in a networking environment to exchange leads and business referrals. LEARN Groups are intended to be a tool for members to cultivate their business. In order to achieve this, each LEARN Group includes 10-20 Regional Chamber members from different industries. 

Participation in LEARN Groups is a FREE service/benefit to our members at the Business Level or above.

Why should I join a LEARN Group?

"Since I have joined LEARN, I have built personal and professional relationships with other Regional Chamber members that have led to many other contacts in our community; contacts that would have taken years to have made on my own. The one hour a week we meet is probably one of my most efficient."   

-Dawn King, KVEW TV

LEARN is a great way to get out and meet other professionals within our community. Through the building of relationships I have been able to pass referrals to other trusted advisors and valued creators within their specific professions. In addition, I have also been fortunate enough to receive referrals that translated into real closed business…I would highly recommend the participation in LEARN if you want to grow your business and share in the success of others.”

-Bill Walther, Gesa Credit Union
