What is Refer Local? 

Refer Local is a monthly business networking luncheon for GO LOCAL members and guests every 2nd Friday at rotating restaurant locations.  

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.

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. To attend Refer Local lunches regularly, become a GO LOCAL business member.

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?

The agenda for the meetings is generally as follows:

  • Informal networking - at beginning, when lunch is served, and at end
  • Brief introductions by all attendees and host - 20 minutes
  • Member Spotlight(s) - 10-20 minutes
  • GO LOCAL updates - 10 minutes


10-Minute Member Spotlight : A GO LOCAL member will be featured at each meeting. This member may present to the group about themselves and their business, including time for Q&A. Spotlighted members are encouraged to bring a raffle prize for attendees.
