The Friday Networking Lunch is a donor supported non-profit organization.   Contributions from the Friday Networking Lunch Sponsors were used to develop this site and are being used to cover ongoing maintenance costs.

Donations of any size are always appreciated and will be put to good use.
Those individuals or businesses donating $100 or more are considered official sponsors for 12 full months following the receipt of their donation.

As a way to recognize and thank sponsors for their generosity, each sponsor receives their own FNL page to let you know more about them and the services they provide.  The Friday Networking Lunch Sponsors also receive recognition on our Meetup page and elsewhere from time to time.

Why Support FNL?

Small businesses are the life blood of our local economy.  Many of these small businesses do not have an advertising budget and instead rely on networking and word of mouth referrals as their primary method of bringing in new clients.  The Friday Networking Lunch is an important resource to these small business professionals.   When you attend the FNL or make a charitable contribution to support the FNL, you are actually supporting small businesses and the local economy.

The mark of a good conversationalist is not that you can talk a lot. The mark is that you can get others to talk a lot. Thus, good schmoozer’s are good listeners, not good talkers.

Networking is not a part-time or occasional exercise. Everywhere we go, we haven an opportunity to network with others.

Leaders empower individuals by building trust and coaching competence in their job roles and networking skills.
