Submitted by the Tri-Cities Business Exchange
Thanks to all who have participated in the Tri-Cities Business Exchange thus far! We are here for the businesses of College Park, East Point and Hapeville. We also serve Unincorporated College Park (Fulton and Clayton counties)
One thing that our meetings focus on is making sure that people are passing leads and referrals. We know that in groups such as ours, you want to make sure you are getting business contacts. We require that you make contact with anyone you meet in the group within 48-60 hours of the meeting.
When you come to the meeting, have in mind of other business that you know that someone may need to benefit from. Groups like ours only work if you participate and take advantage of the opportunities. All too often, business owners expect others to do it for them. We have accountability and responsibility mechanisms within our organization.
We have various activities such as speed networking, group activities, flash networking and motivational exercises to keep you engaged and involved in the group. We have many things in store for 2013 that we will annouce soon!
