Are you a business owner or work for someone located in Harlem Valley, Western Connecticut, Southern Dutchess County or Putnam County?   If so this group is for you.  Our goal is simple.  To help like minded businesses owners and employees develop new relationships as well as build on existing ones for the purpose of getting new business.  All are welcome!

With this group we are going to try something different.  We are going to do "Business Networking with a Purpose".  In other words, we are not going to just sit and talk about ourselves.  There are plenty of other venues for that.  Here we want you to bring a project (big or small) and we will come up with folks in the group that are willing to help out.  Projects can anything from helping charity events raise money to assisting the elderly in a nursing home for example.  You name it.  The point is to work with others on a common project, rub elbows and really get to know each other.   After all, who would you rather give a referral to?  Someone who just shows up to talk about themselves or someone who rolled up their sleeves and helped you out with something?  Our guess is someone who actually pitched in and helped.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
