Why do the PFS Members tout the difference from other networking groups?
PFS offers a structured system for our business to business networking groups. Each meeting is conducted in a friendly, upbeat manner with a focus on exchanging business leads and referrals.
Our meetings are completed in ONE hour. Our Meeting Directors’ pride themselves on beginning and ending each meeting on time.
Our monthly meeting time commitment is twice a month. However, some preparation on gathering referrals is needed between meetings.
All our leads/referrals are passed verbally so each member can utilize each lead as they might see fit for their business. This also gives members an opportunity to develop each lead further with their input and knowledge of that particular lead/referral within the meeting.
Our annual dues are half the price of some other referral groups.
There is only one person representing one industry.
It is highly encouraged that members bring guests to assist in the growth of each group. However, there is not a “Visitors Day” or the pressure associated with that requirement.
Our meetings are most productive when all the members are in attendance, however, we do not have a strict attendance policy. Members will get the most from their membership if their attendance is high!
PFS has no fines or per meeting fees. PFS offers the members the convenience of paying for their membership and that’s all!
We offer time before and after each meeting to connect, share personal experiences, ask questions and network with each other.
Visitors can visit any meeting, so they can experience the format of the meetings as they are facilitated every time, as well as meet the members and guests.
PFS is an upbeat and positive place to do business and it is our belief that having a good attitude will make the meeting much more productive as well as enjoyable.
All problem situations are handled by the Meeting Director, not by the members. It is our goal to handle any problem quickly and fairly. We are a positive and friendly place to build your business.
PFS is an active member in the local Chamber of Commerce and we encourage our members to be active in their events and to be involved in the community events.
PFS Meeting Directors start new groups ~ if there is a core group of five interested people and a place to meet, a group can be formed. Also, if there is already representation for a particular industry, then another group could be started. PFS tries to manage our groups and not turn anyone away.
You have tried the rest, now try PFS!
