- Why do you meet weekly?
Weekly meetings ensure that members get to know each other. Each week attendees give a commercial about their business so members and guests will remember what you do. Meeting less often has negative consequences. Groups tend to become more social in nature and, therefore, not conducive to generating business leads. Meeting less frequently impedes the focus and momentum of networking.
