Do you ever wish you could use a lifeline and "phone a friend?” Our members can do just that because they know each other. We combat "owner isolation” through live events held in various locations across the state where members meet each other. Countless deals, ideas, connections, direction, experiences and laughs have been shared as we get to talk shop. Technology has not replaced the need for good old one-on-one, in person conversations which are the backbone of real relationships.
