How to Join A Louisville Business Networking Chapter


We welcome any business representative who is interested in building their business by referral to visit one of our chapters to see if we are a fit for their business.

Louisville Business Networking, LLC Chapters are exclusive representation groups, meaning that only one business per category is allowed to guarantee top of mind referrals. Interested members may attend two meetings before they are required to submit a membership application.

If a member is unable to participate, he/she may have a suitable substitute visit instead, up to a maximum of three times per calendar quarter. The substitute must be in a similar profession as the member or can be from another business if not in competition with an existing member.

Should a member fail to attend (or provide a substitute) for three or more meetings in any calendar quarter, Louisville Business Networking, LLC has the right to terminate his or her membership.
