Business Referral Groups

Business Referral Groups (BRGs) provide a forum for the in-depth exchange of business leads and referrals among non-competing group members.

The Chamber currently has six active Business Referral Groups that each meet twice monthly to provide a forum for the exchange of business leads and referrals among non-competing group members while allowing for increased exposure in the region.

Membership in a BRG is ideal for those interested in generating new business and developing a network of contacts.

The following groups meet at the Chamber’s Albany office, 5 Computer Drive South in Colonie:

  • BRG1 meets on the first and third Wednesday of each month from 12 – 1 p.m.
  • BRG2 meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month from 8 – 9 a.m.
  • BRG3 meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month from 12 – 1 p.m.
  • BRG4 meets on the second and fourth Monday of each month from 12 – 1 p.m.

The following groups meet at the Chamber’s Schenectady office at 1473 Erie Boulevard in Schenectady:

  • BRG5 meets on the second and fourth Thursday of the month from 12 – 1 p.m.
  • BRG6 meets on the  second and fourth Friday of the month from 12 – 1 p.m.

 

Membership within a BRG is exclusive by industry. Submit an application form to express interest in joining a BRG. After submitting the application, you will be notified as to whether you may join a current group (meaning your industry is not currently represented in a group) or if your application will be considered for a future group (meaning your industry is represented in each of the current groups).
