Livingston Business Network

LIVINGSTON BUSINESS NETWORK  is a program of the Chamber which provides business professionals the opportunity to collaborate on a regular basis by meeting in peer groups. The groups are limited to one representative of a corresponding industry allowing professionals to learn more about each others industries in the group.  Group members are also offered an opportunity to spotlight their business and provide an education segment through a scheduled agenda. Business development, professional development and business referrals are an important part of the program. In the short time since Group 1 began, millions have already been referred and closed.

Livingston Business Network is intended to be a tool for members to cultivate their business. In order to achieve this, each Network Group will include Livingston Parish Chamber members from different industries. Each group has the opportunity to set their meeting time and frequency plus outline special considerations of the group. Participation in Livingston Business Network Groups is a service/benefit to our members and is included at the Connected Member Level. Basic level members pay only $275 annually to be a part of a group. All other levels are NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE to be a part of the group. Although leads, referrals and recommendations are part of the program, it is more than that. The rounded business development offerings of the chamber are included making this program an exceptional value for your business.

The Livingston Business Network provides an opportunity for Chamber Members to...

  • Learn about other industries as well as teach group members about yours.
  • Support each other in business through referrals, shared experiences and expertise/advice.
  • Create and maintain an effective networking environment.
  • Build personal and professional relationships with other Livingston Parish Chamber members.
  • Develop strategies to grow and expand their business.

  • Get to know others in the group - build collaboration and friendships.
  • Each group has the opportunity to set their meeting time and frequency plus outline special considerations of the group.
