What is Refer Local?

Why participate?

The driving spirit is building a stronger GO LOCAL business community through quality relationships, working together, and creating referral connections.

Refer Local provides a social format to work together to share and gain customers, which in turn helps strengthen the local economy. Participants provide their energy and expertise to help our community keep our dollars local.

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

Group Makeup: There is no restriction on the number of businesses from the same industry.

What are the meetings like?

  • Brief introductions by all attendees and host - 20 minutes
  • Member Spotlight(s) - 10-20 minutes
