  • Members may only belong to one weekly or bi-weekly Chamber networking group at a time. *The only exception is with the Golf Networking Group; members may be a part of a weekly or bi-weekly Networking Group as Well as Golf Networking.
  • If a Chamber member wants to join a networking group that a visiting non-Chamber member wants to join, the Chamber member will have the right to that spot. The non-Chamber member attendee will not be able to hold that spot nor attend future meetings in that networking group. This rule applies even if the non-Chamber member visitor has not yet attended the three allotted meetings within the consecutive two-month period.
  • Only Chamber members will be permitted to make presentations at a Networking Group function.
  • Only Chamber members may introduce themselves in Networking Group and are restricted to talking exclusively about their company or companies they represent.

 

Policies and Procedures For Lead and Feed

  • Members may participate in Lead and Feed and a weekly or bi-weekly networking group.
  • Three businesses from each industry may attend these monthly luncheons.
  • Non-chamber members may attend one luncheon before joining the chamber.
  • A Chamber team member will review the list of attendees prior to the luncheon and introduce the non-chamber members separately.
  • Only Chamber members will be permitted to make presentation at a Networking group function.
  • Leads may be given to non-chamber members at the luncheon.
  • Only Chamber members may introduce themselves and talk exclusively about their company or companies they represent.

 

West Orange Chamber Staff Support

  • Issues that arise in the networking groups, which are not quickly resolved to everyone’s satisfaction, will be turned over to the Chamber staff for resolution.

 

* An Emerging Level member may speak about the one-member business as part of this level of membership and within the designated industry provided to the Chamber. An Enhanced Level member may speak about their business in their second industry provided to the Chamber, as long as the second industry has been approved by the group administrator. (See additional guidelines below for speaking on a second industry).

An Elite Level member may speak about the two member\ businesses as part of this level of membership and within both of the designated industries (per business), provided by the Chamber, as long as the second industry has been approved by the group administrator.

Exclusive Level members may speak about up to four member businesses as part of this level of membership and within both designated industries (per business), provided by the Chamber, as long as the second industries have been approved by the group administrator.  The right to attend two different Networking Groups is only the right of the Elite or Exclusive level or Trustee level of membership as part of their additional membership(s) under different business names.

 

Additional Guidelines for Speaking on Second Industry

  • The member must seek approval from the group administrator and ask to speak on the second industry
  • The group administrator will verify that the industry is official, available and that the member is an Enhanced, Elite, Exclusive or a Trustee member
  • If the industry is available and an official industry, then the group administrator will update the website to reflect two industries
  • At that point, the member will be able to speak on both industries during their 30 second elevator speech
  • The member may also opt to rotate their industries from session to session, rather than speaking about both in one session
  • The same rules will apply in the member’s group presentation in regard to their ability to speak on two industries, but not at two presentations unless they are Elite, Exclusive or Trustee members since they have more than one membership

 

 

“The Tuesday, Wednesday and Horizon West groups allow for one business per industry or specific segments within each industry.  The Friday group allows for two businesses per industry.  To find out if there is an opening for you or to be added to a waiting list, please contact the Group Administrator.”
