Partnership Business Resource Groups

Business Resource Groups (BRGs) and Forums are a great way to leverage your company’s membership for employee and community engagement. Members are invited to engage in six BRGs, each tailored to a unique audience or affinity group, creating avenues to connect with members who share common business goals. Members enjoy BRGs for the valuable program content and networking opportunities. BRGs are also a platform for professional, leadership and business development, empowering employees to bring knowledge back to their companies. Forums, formally known as Councils, revolve around timely topics and feature information sharing and networking components and are complimentary to all member company employees.

Select the BRGs you'd like to get involved in and we'll send updates on networking opportunities and invitations to exciting programming.
