Business Advantage Referral Network (BARN)

Meet Your Extended Sales Team! The BARN (Business Advantage Referral Network) group is a great opportunity to network and build relationships. We refer business to people we know, trust and like, and this meeting is designed to help our members grow each others’ businesses. The group is growing and has produced a steady stream of business for its members.

A full group meeting is held the second Tuesday of each month from 7:30 to 9:00 am. The agenda includes self-Introductions, member spotlights or a quarterly educational topic, quad meeting selection and feedback, networking and a buffet breakfast.

At the end of the meeting, groups of four (quad groups) are formed to meet outside of the meeting on another day within the month. These groups are designed to be a more intimate gathering, where members are better able to build better relationships and to gain a better understanding of the other members’ businesses.

Member Spotlight:  Members are provided the opportunity to showcase their business by presenting themselves and their company to the group. Presentations are followed by an interactive question and answer session.

Educational Series: Monthly, the group determines a relevant business or networking topic that they wish to examine in greater detail. The program is presented by a member with expertise in the subject matter or by a panel of members that have experience with and knowledge of the topic.

Guests: Guests are encouraged to visit the group and experience it before making a commitment to join. Each guest is allowed two (2) visits before being asked to make a commitment.

Members of the Business Advantage Referral Network are required to be members of the Buffalo Grove/Lincolnshire or Wheeling/Prospect Heights Chambers of Commerce.

Dues: $100 per year to cover breakfast for Tier I and II.  This is included in the membership benefits for Tier III members.   Dues are payable to the Buffalo Grove/Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce or Wheeling/Prospect Heights Chambers of Commerce.
