Group Mission: To build a community of Denver metro area businesses that serve other businesses in the growing Rino District, with the goal of fostering collaboration and business referrals among members.

Members: Our members are representatives of local companies that provide products/services for other businesses.  There can be more than one member for a single company as long as the other rules are followed.  Member companies might be architects, artists, photographers, product manufacturers, printers, IT providers, consulting firms, design firms, law firms, wholesalers, etc.  Any business in the Denver Metro Area that sells to other businesses is a potential member.

Group Organizer: The group will elect a new group organizer by silent ballot each year at the end of the last meeting in March.  Any member can nominate themselves for group Organizer.  The Organizer will be responsible for managing dues and allocating to food and space expenses, selecting sponsor(s), coordinating with sponsors for resources, selecting monthly meeting time and location, arranging food and meeting space, dictating the meeting agenda, leading the monthly meetings, facilitate the vote on new members, and manage memberships and terminations.

New Membership: There is intended to be only one member/company per product/service AND target market.  To ensure this, new members must be unanimously approved by the existing members.Member presentations: Members are expected to give a 15-20 minute presentation every six months.  This will allow other members to build a greater understanding of their business.

Guests: Members can bring guests any time.  Member guests should RSVP to ensure that we have enough food.

Sponsor: Any company can sponsor the group.  Prospective sponsors should inquire with the Organizer.  Typically the sponsor will provide space and/or cover a portion of the food/refreshments.

Dues: There are currently no dues for the Rino Business-to-Business Leads Group, however participation is mandatory.  In the future, we may consider a nominal due to cover a modest lunch and meeting space

Meeting times: Monthly, usually at lunch.  Meeting dates and times will be announced via Meet-up initially.  90 minutes. 

Regular agenda - 90 minutes:

• Welcome guests and new members, brief group intro (5 minutes)

• A few minutes for each member to introduce themselves and describe their business and how it could benefit other member businesses and their customers.  Answer brief questions. (20 minutes)

• 5 minute break to snack and socialize

• Member presentation one: 15-20 minutes

• 5 minute break to snack and socialize

• Member presentation two: 15-20 minutes

• Wrap up/snack/socialize

Membership Termination: A membership can be terminated in the following ways:

• A vote from two existing members (members appeal directly to the Organizer who will mediate and/or execute the termination).  This would usually happen in cases where a member moves into a target market that competes with another member, or where a member is adversarial with other members.

• Three or more months of absence

• Three or more months of non-payment of dues (not currently applicable)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
