What is Livingston Business Network ?

Livingston Business Network, LBN provides business professionals an opportunity to meet in peer groups for the purpose of developing professionally while growing their business and network without a weekly commitment.  Members meet on a regular schedule, typically twice a month, to discuss business trends, industry challenges and ways to help each other grow their business.

The network group members are offered the opportunity to collaborate on a regular basis for the purpose of supporting members of an exclusive group.  Members share referrals, business experience, expertise and advice.

How does LBN work? 

Groups are formed by a core group of professionals.  There can be more than one group within the Chamber.  Each group is limited to one representative per corresponding industry.  There are 6 - 25 members in each group.  Through this network, relationships and trust are built resulting in referrals and recommendations which ultimately lead to business development and growth.  Each group has the opportunity to set their meeting time and frequency plus outline special considerations of the group.

What can I expect at a meeting?  

At each meeting, the agenda includes a business education segment and spotlight from a group member.  This protocol allows members to learn more about the member each time.  Each group member introduces themselves and briefly mentions any way they need assistance by the group.

Who can join a group? 

Members of the Chamber can join the group that has an opening in their industry.  Additional fees may apply depending on level of membership making it an affordable option for Livingston Parish businesses.
