This year we are celebrating our 10 year anniversary. That’s right, we started January of 2009 with a group of like business people whom wanted to start an organization founded on networking and building a team with all money invested going back into our community. Come see what we can do to help grow your business.
Come Together, Grow Together
By joining Oregon Networking Exchange members enjoy the benefit of joining a team of like-minded business owners and professionals that want to grow their business by referral. They have the opportunity to lean and share new ideas, “receive” training and develop relationships with their peers both personally and professionally. Members also “benefit” from the opportunity to fill leadership positions within their chapter and at the board level, where they have the opportunity to develop new skills that can add value to their professional “careers”.
Today there are many choices for those looking to join a networking group. ONE is committed to providing a minimum base structure to their member chapter while not stifling their members from implementing their own chapter flavor. Unlike many larger organizations, we do not require Chapters to stick to a specific agenda. Each chapter member has a vote on who they want to elect to leadership positions within their chapter. O.N.E. dues are relatively inexpensive as compared to larger organizations, and member dues are split: 1/3 to fund the individual chapter and 2/3 to fund the whole organization. The O.N.E. organization is made up of voluntary leaders from each chapter, so all funds collected by the organization are used solely to promote and support the growth of each and every O.N.E. member through training, networking events and other items needed to maintain an efficient and successful organization.
Hard networking organizations like ONE have singular business classification typically, that are specifically to grow your business and pass referrals. ONE members are only allowed to be part of one hard networking organization but we encourage being a part of several soft networking organizations as well to increase your business exposure.
