We are a category-exclusive faith-based business network and referral group based in Round Rock. We currently meet every Thursday at Sleep Inn on IH-35 just north of La Frontera (1980 IH-35, Round Rock, TX).
Effective February 1, 2013, we are eliminating monthly fees. Our weekly meeting fee for members is $10, which includes a buffet lunch and covers the room fee. People are welcome to visit and the visitor fee for that meeting is $12.
The purpose of each Around the 'Rock Business Networking Group is to establish a structured meeting time and place for a select group of qualified business “professionals” who wish to cooperate for the sole purpose of helping each other succeed in business through the exchange of business referrals, marketplace information, and leadership training. Membership will be limited to 50 people.
Qualifications and Admittance
Members must demonstrate a high standard of quality, ethics, professionalism and reliability, both
personally, and with regard to their products and/or services. Criteria for the selection of new members will be at the discretion of the membership committee (consisting of the President, Vice President, Secretary/Treasurer, and 2 other group members).
Only one representative per each business classification (to be determined by the membership committee) will be admitted to the group at any given time.
Commitment and reliability are key ingredients of a professional and are required of all group members. The group secretary will take attendance at each meeting. If a member misses 3 or more consecutive meetings or 7 meetings over a six-month period, it will be presumed that he/she no longer wishes to be a participating member. In such case, his/her name will be removed from the roster and the business category will be announced as available for a new member. It is strongly urged that if a member must miss a meeting, that they find a substitute, which won't count against attendance. Extenuating circumstances (such as illness or extended trip, etc.) are evaluated on a case by case basis. Any pre-paid dues, if applicable, will be forfeited.
While it is not mandatory, it is hoped that every member will try to give out at least one referral per week. It is also helpful to the group to bring visitors whenever possible until the 50-member group maximum is reached.
