Florida Business Forum - 3 Types of Meetings
Monthly Chapter Meetings:
Once a Chapter has sufficient active members (usually 15) then the Chapter will begin holding monthly meetings for all active members to attend. The Monthly Chapter Meetings are generally designed to be informative, educational and productive. Occasionally, there will be speakers from within the Chapter or sometimes guest experts from the world of business.
While networking is not the main focus of these meetings, it takes place frequently and effectively.
Executive Lunch Meetings:
The Executive Lunch Meetings are designed to be a small group of members that meet together to socialize, interact and share common interests. These events are designed to build and develop connections with fellow members and a very powerful way to learn more about each member in a small group setting. These meetings become an essential ingredient to trusting, liking and sharing business knowledge with the other business owners.
Active Board Members and prospective Board Members are eligible to attend monthly Board Meetings with no more than 8 other Board Members to review and discuss goals, ideas, strategies, challenges or issues that are presented by each Board Member in attendance.
These meetings are a great "MasterMind" group and give each attendee a very valuable opportunity to harness the experience, knowledge and resources of other Board Members. Effective Board Meetings occur on a regular basis, and usually last about 3 to 4 hours.
