Are You Concerned About How Much Time You Will Need To Commit When You Become a New Member?

Time is widely considered our most valuable commodity. How can a business person not only justify the minimal expense of membership let alone taking the time needed to attend meetings and network when they become a member?
A CBC member recently remarked that the CBC “gave her more value than she could ever give in return” meaning that she didn’t need to invest an inordinate amount of time in the organization to see her investment grow. The Council doesn’t expect you to give your life away in order to justify your involvement. We can work around your busy routine to provide connection points no matter your schedule with our planning of events during morning, noon and evening.
