What is a meeting like?

  • Commerce Connections is a professional and friendly group that welcomes visitors and strengthens existing relationships. All meetings have an agenda, guest and member introductions, scheduled speakers, educational moments, and a review of the group's current KPIs, "VENATOR."

What are some other differences between this group and other networking groups?

  • Commerce Connections has combined the best features of various networking group styles to offer the best opportunity for growth through referrals. Commerce Connections engages in friendly "competition" and recognition within the group by tracking attendance, education, one-to-one meetings, referrals, and closed business. These stats are reviewed weekly so members can see how their efforts are generating sales, new business, and professional development. 
  • Members are encouraged to track and challenge themselves. Commerce Connections celebrates both a "Member of the Month" and a "Member of the Quarter" with different accolades. Moreover, Commerce Connections has an online system called the VENATOR (the acronym of the seven metrics, which also means "Hunter" in Latin), where members submit their achievements and thank other members for their referrals. This data is shared weekly and quarterly. Additionally, Commerce Connections fosters community involvement and creates active campaigns every quarter to help local charities.

How long are the meetings?

  • All meetings are for 90 minutes.

What is the meeting attire, and what should I bring?

  • Commerce Connections members typically wear business attire appropriate to their industry. Some will be in office attire, some in business casual clothing, and some will wear a company polo. Guests are welcome to bring business cards and other hand-out items to share. You may also want to have your calendar to schedule one-to-one meetings.

How much does it cost to join?

  • All guests can attend their first three meetings for FREE. After three consecutive visits, guests are invited to apply for membership to the group. The application fee is $100, and monthly dues are $40 (via automatic draft payments). Commerce Connections believes you'll continue to come if you find value; therefore, the group has no contracts or long-term commitments. You can leave the group and cancel your monthly payment anytime, provided a 30-day notice.

What if I can't make it to every weekly meeting?

  • Commerce Connections encourages members to attend every meeting. Regular attendance and growth have a strong relationship. However, Commerce Connections also understands the small business and respects that sometimes you're called to work, have a sick child, or need a day off. Thus, attendance is not mandatory. 
  • There are safeguards. Your seat will be in jeopardy after missing more than three weeks in a row without a valid reason.
