Within your first three months you will be welcomed by our Integration Chair who will work with you to get you acclimated to our local organization. Our Forum Chair will work with you to coordinate your forum training and place you in a forum group.
A member-led, confidential, peer-sharing program
What would you give for the ability to tap into a group of 7-10 fellow business owners who can offer you direction based on their experiences? Your forum acts as your personal board of advisors on the situations you choose to discuss. Monthly forum meetings allow you to explore the deepest decisions you face in a safe and non-judgmental environment.
