What we're about

If you are into dues-taking, micro-managing, exclusive groups who will "ding" you if you don't show up, or get on your case for not giving a referral, then this is NOT for you.

Good Ol' Gals Business Connections is a women's networking organization with no dues, no restrictions, no limits and no exclusions (meaning we are INclusive - more than 1 gal within the same industry or even the same company can attend) with locations in San Diego (Old Town), San Marcos and Carlsbad.

Embracing the social side of business™ (which is how business REALLY gets done), GOGs is a well-established group experiencing a growth and build season.

We believe in the power of women helping women to be successful. And hence our motto is "Together We're Better!"

All you have to do to be a GOG is register for the meeting of your choice and show up!
