On Monday, November 6th the Executives Association of Long Beach met for their weekly networking luncheon at The Grand Event Center. This week they had their second installment of the Speed Networking session Execs style. 

Each member was asked to tell what a good lead for them at this time would be and after each person at the table had a chance to speak they rotated. 

There wasn't time for a lead session but it sure sounded like there was plenty of business being conducted during the meeting. 

We encourage our members to think of each lunch as a business meeting and make their calendars for every Monday at noon. We also want our membership (roughly 50 members) to act as each others outside sales team and regularly refer business to one another. 

Next Meeting:

We meet again next week on November 13th, at The Betty Reckas Cultural Center for our annual Thanksgiving meal hosted by our caterer TGIS! This year we want to bring back our tradition of announcing how much revenue the EALB has generated for your business from January to November 1st, 2017. What better time to show our gratitude and thanks to one another? 
Each meeting is a business meeting. Mark you calendar. Arrive on time to be sure to bring a lead or review for your fellow members. 


Remember to invite guests to keep our membership continually growing!
