The Power of Referrals! Are you looking for a way to grow your business? Take advantage of the Maumee Chamber networking program, Dynamic Referral Partners (DRP).
DRP is open to Chamber members, taking one representative from each profession per group. The main focus of the program is to pass qualified leads and do business together. You will establish professional relationships that will serve as a vital resource to growing your business. This program requires a commitment to attend the meetings and be an active participant.
Meeting Location: William Vaughan Company Conference Room
Meets on the 1st & 3rd Wednesdays
DRP Fees: There is an annual fee of $45. You must be a Chamber member in good standing to begin or renew your DRP membership. In addition, you will incur a "meeting" fee of $5 payable at each meeting. Members have the option to bring their own lunch.

Attendance Requirements: Attendance is important. DRP provides an effective way to network, but requires serious-minded business people to make it work. What you will get is referrals for new business, and 20 or more business people promoting your services to their friends and business contacts on an on-going basis. Members can miss up to 2 meetings every 6 months. Absence is not counted against you if a suitable substitute is sent in your place. Members can also not miss 2 meetings in a row, as that is a month of not being visible to the group. It is important to be an active participant in DRP in order to make the program successful for yourself and others.
Guest Policy: Guests are always welcome and can attend two meetings before making a decision to join. Prospective members must turn in an application to be considered and multiple applicants for the same profession will be reviewed by the office. Chamber Membership is required to participate in DRP. Chamber Membership dues begin at $165 a year.
