What is your #1 goal as a chapter?

Member Accountability

What is your chapter's key to success?  

Sincere caring about individual reputation and the success of all businesses in our chapter, not just our own.

What is your favorite chapter meeting stimulant?  

1-2-1 challenge; "Every other person turn to your right and schedule a 1-2-1 with the person you’re looking at";  "Next week tell the group what their most common new client buys from them the first time or what product or service do they provide that has the highest profit margin."

How do you keep the FUN in FUNdamentals?  

By making sure we don't except "just anyone" into our group. Membership committee makes sure they "fit in" with our group. Each new applicant must have someone in our group "stand up for them" or background checks must be performed to ensure a quality addition is being made. We protect our own! One bad member reflects on all of us!!
