What is Refer Local?

Mission: Refer Local provides structured networking opportunities, a referral framework and various tools that enable GO LOCAL business members to give, receive, and track quality referrals in order to increase profits and customers. The program is based on the spirit of working together to strengthen the community through economic partnerships. Participants provide their energy and expertise to help keep our dollars local.

Why participate?

Refer Local provides a social format for GO LOCAL businesses to work together to share and gain customers, which in turn helps strengthen the local economy.

Who can participate?

Membership in Refer Local is for GO LOCAL business or organization members. Interested business persons can also attend on their own as a guest.

Guests: Refer Local members are welcome to bring guests to a meeting, including non-members. The guest must become a GO LOCAL business member to attend Refer Local regularly

New Members: All participants are encouraged to solicit new members into the program and into GO LOCAL.
