To induct you into the group is FUN! Everyone who is has been there 3 times in the past 3 months stands up, they say a few words and then they say “POOF” and you are now a member!
No dues, just great networking…
Here is the bio from their Meetup Page:
“NBX (National Business Exchange) is a professional networking group that has met for lunch for over ten years. NBX is a highly successful group that has been in the business of growing our member's businesses since 1990. NBX welcomes members and visitors from all professions.
(NBX encourages multiple members and visitors from the same profession to join; we have found many of the strongest relationships come from "competitors.") NBX has a unique, informal culture with a simple structure and few rules. We owe our great success to the fact that we focus on developing long-lasting professional relationships.
As one of our members puts it, "Friends first, business later." Membership in NBX requires only that you attend three times in three months. Members have the opportunity to showcase themselves and their business at meetings and are listed in our directory. “
