The Chamber offers two types of networking groups: LeadShare groups and Industry specific groups. An individual may join only one LeadShare group and may represent only one business category within that group. The Industry groups are open to all businesses in those industries and focus on common issues and concerns.
An individual may join only one LeadShare Group and may represent only one business category within that Group. To join a LeadShare Group one must:
- Be a Mount Vernon Lee Chamber member.
- Complete a LeadShare application and submit to the Chamber.
- Receive approval from the Group Leader and Chamber staff so there is no conflict with another member’s business category.
- Pay the $65 LeadShare dues.
A position in a LeadShare Group cannot be assigned until these procedures have been met.
