BDC News

Well here's your chance to create relationships with some smart people that can help your business thrive. Every Tuesday at 7am we share breakfast and meet with other professionals looking for companies just like yours to share referrals with. Imagine the power of a room full of community business leaders who are always on the lookout for your perfect customer.

Our meetings are fast paced and structured to accomplish a lot while respecting our members' valuable time. Each week we pass Referrals, enjoy a BDC Success Story, learn from an Education Segment, and engage in a 20 minute Brainsparking Session. Brainsparking is when all of our members take time out of our meeting to help one member with questions about his or her business. We also occasionally invite local dignitaries to speak at our club on matters important to small business.

There is no doubt, the BDC is all about growing businesses. We are more than just a leads group, we offer members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly, business referrals. If you are serious about taking your business to the next level, the BDC is for you!

Reporting Activities

Reporting Activities, including passing business referrals, is another key to our success. In fact, we highly value all extracurricular activities as investments in our business development. The Secretary monitors the Activities to insure active participation from every member. The BDC also offers After Hours gatherings to network, access to media through our Business Library, Training Classes, and a fulfilling opportunity to better the community through activities designed to support local charities.

Brain Sparking

Brain Sparking is a group mentoring process that has proven to be the most exciting and rewarding part BDC meetings. Each week, a business whose profile has been e-mailed to every member, will take five minutes to introduce three areas of concern for their business. During the week, members will e-mail suggestions to the club. The very next week that member is given 20 minutes to field questions and suggestions from the club. The featured businesses have found the response invaluable.

Our Members

Members of the BDC are people of character, exhibiting excellence, with a track record to prove it. We admit just one member of each business category. There will never be competing businesses. The Better Business Bureau will scrutinize each prospective member and the applicant’s references are closely checked. Throughout their membership they will be subject to discipline or expulsion if they fail to maintain the high degree of integrity demanded by the BDC.
