Leads Groups participants are among some of the most engaged Greater Irvine Chamber members. They are focused on growing their clientele and business revenue by cultivating professional relationships with fellow members who become trusted colleagues and invaluable sources for business referrals through a structured networking program. By extension, Leads Groups contribute to the economy of greater Irvine by positively impacting business growth in the region.
Each Leads Group is comprised of 25-30 individuals that meet twice a month in non-competing industries providing each other with opportunities to improve recruiting and selling techniques, presentation skills, strategic partnerships, and to build a strong leads and referral exchange network.
Over the past five years, Greater Irvine Chamber Leads Groups have collectively earned roughly $200 million in closed referred business. The year-over-year success of the Leads Groups is in large part due to the commitment and guidance provided by leaders in each of the groups. Group leaders are selected for one fiscal year term through nominations reviewed by the steering committee (comprised of one representative from each group) and appointed by Greater Irvine Chamber executives. Individuals in good standing in accordance with Leads Groups rules and the Greater Irvine Chamber Member Code of Conduct are eligible for nomination each fiscal year.
