What we're about
The S.M.A.R.T. (Southwest Marketing And Referral Team) Referrals Business Networking Groups are open networking groups for small business owners and professionals located in the Southwest Valley that are interested in growing their business through a relationship based referral open networking team. Visitors who feel they could benefit from open networking and referrals are always welcome to check us out and are encouraged but not required to inquire with Darren Mullins (602-499-6427) first to learn more about our open networking groups. The SMART Referrals "8:00 Roundup" Networking Group meets at 8:00AM every 1st and 3rd Thursday of each monthat Rudy's Bar-B-Q located in Goodyear at 845 N Litchfield Rd, Goodyear, AZ, 85338 (east side of Litchfield Rd just south of I-10 in Goodyear) and the SMART Referrals "Lunchtime Business Builders" Networking Group meets at noon every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month at The Main Event located in Avondale at 10315 W McDowell Rd, Avondale, AZ, 85392 (southwest corner of 103rd Ave & McDowell Rd in Avondale). Everyone is allowed a 60 second "commercial" about their businesses and we also "showcase" up to two businesses per meeting with 10 minute presentations. "Showcase" presenters bring a door prize (up to $20 maximum value) that all attendees are eligible to win via a free "door prize" raffle. We do not charge for attendance, but we do accept a VOLUNTARY $1 per person, per meeting "50/50 Raffle" to help cover the expenses associated with organizing this group. Participation in the "50/50 Raffle" is not required to attend, but those who participate are eligible for half of the "50/50 Raffle" proceeds at the end of the meeting. Any unused "50/50 Raffle" proceeds at the end of the year will go towards a group Christmas party. As an open networking group, there are no membership contracts, annual dues, or membership fees charged. Meetings begin promptly at their scheduled times and adjourn about 90 minutes later, but attendees are welcome to stay longer for "open networking" and "mingling". Please be courteous and try to RSVP on this site by 9pm on the Wednesday before the meeting if you plan to attend. Those who know they cannot make it should also please let Darren Mullins (602-499-6427) know as well. Courtesy counts! We hope to see you there and please bring plenty of business cards!
