Referral Groups

Winston-Salem Leads Groups

The Chamber is home to some of the longest-running Winston-Salem leads groups in the city. The purpose of our referral groups is to build relationships with non-competing businesses in order to provide and exchange referrals and/or business leads. Here is how our referral groups are structured:

  • Membership in each group is limited to 30 members, with only one member per industry. This creates a non-competitive environment, which allows each member to share referrals for products and services.
  • Meetings are formatted to allow each member to give a brief “commercial” about their business. In addition, one member is spotlighted by giving a 10-minute presentation.
  • To ensure success of the groups, attendance policies are in place.
  • There are no additional fees for membership with one of the Chamber referral groups.
  • Referral group members must be Chamber members in good standing, complete an application, and be approved by the referral group membership committee prior to acceptance into the group.
  • Membership in a referral group is a benefit of Chamber Membership of the company one is working for at the time they joined the group. Any changes mean reapplying and meeting the membership criteria for the new company.
