Business Referral Groups
The Chamber’s Business Referral Groups (BRG’s) are non-competitive groups for members to give and receive referrals, to learn about each other’s business and to improve their public speaking abilities. Generally, each meeting begins with a 30 second intro and moves through general announcements, formal referrals and formal presentations from members. The BRG’s have from 12 to 25 members, each from a single business category or sector. The morning group meets at 7:30 a.m. on the first and third Wednesday of every month at Ojai Home Kitchen Restaurant; the lunch group meets at Bank of the Sierra board room at 12:00 p.m. on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month.
