The Business Leads Group of The Caldwell Chamber of Commerce are now meeting twice a week! People in our business community who attend these meetings will have the chance to network and share business advice amongst themselves. These members will be able to offer their services, as well as make industry based referrals of services other members provide to local business owners.
The group is comprised of business professionals learning from each other as successful individuals while growing their business entities. Our Leads Groups are designed to assist member networking and leads within the business community. Leads Groups are organized to be non-competitive, so they are limited to one business representative from each industry or professional entity.
Invitation and/or Chamber membership is required to attend these meetings.
