Valdosta Networking Professionals

About Us

Valdosta Networking Professionals (VNP) is one of two business networking groups at the Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce. VNP is a group of professionals (usually sales generators) who meet weekly to exchange sales leads that allow members to build business relationships, which will help them grow their businesses by giving and receiving profitable leads.

HOW DO I JOIN THE GROUP?
You are welcome to visit our group before joining. You don’t even have to be a Chamber member to visit. However, to be a leads group member, you must be a member of the Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce. Also, we can only allow businesses to join that are not competing with those who are already members, therefore, only one industry representative per group is allowed (example: one Insurance Agent, one Real Estate Agent, one Florist, etc.).
SAMPLE MEETING
12:00-12:15 p.m. Network & Eat Lunch
12:15-12:25 p.m. 30 Second Introductions
12:25-12:45 p.m. Featured Speaker

Members are required to bring a lead, a guest or a dollar to each meeting. The money will be collected and put into a pot. At the end of the month the member with the most leads wins the pot.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Attendance is critical for giving and receiving leads. Therefore, the following policies are in effect:

  • You are allowed no more than two (2) absences a month.
  • After a month of absences, you will be notified of your pending "drop" status.
  • If you do not attend the meetings for two (2) months, then it will be announced that you have left the group and your position/category is officially open.
