How can a person attend as a guest?
Usually you are invited by a member or find out about us on our website or Social Media. If you are interested but don't know any members, or if you are unable to decide on a specific chapter, please contact us here and we will help connect you with the right group.
How do I apply for membership in a Chapter?
Your first step is to attend a meeting at the chapter you wish to join. Once you decide the chapter is right for you, discuss the potential for membership with the Chapter President or Vice President and they will facilitate the next steps.

If there is no chapter in your area or if your category is filled in every chapter in your area, contact us and we can discuss any future plans for new chapters. If you would like to explore the idea of being part of a new chapter launch in your area, we would certainly welcome a discussion. Contact us via this link.
Why only one person from each profession?
This practice ensures that each person gets the maximum benefit from their membership. There is also the factor of avoiding conflict within the group. Many times, hard feelings could be generated if there were two or more people in the same profession competing for leads and the person supplying them had to choose who they pass a lead to. This avoids uncomfortable situations for all involved.
Are visitors expected to speak in front of the whole group?
Absolutely. This is not a chore but an opportunity to tell the group about yourself and your business, as well as how they can help you. For the most part this will only be for a minute or less. Most people have a fear of public speaking and find that speaking in a group setting helps them improve and eliminate the fear.
Why does TRBN choose not to mandate referrals?
Focusing on referrals and forcing a certain number of leads to be passed per week, invites the 'desperation referral', these referrals waste everybody's time and can also cost reputations. We focus on building business relationships, which result in a more organic approach to passing referrals, once relationships are built, it is only natural to want to help each other succeed which results in true warm leads.
My Business is based on MLM or Direct Marketing, can I join?
Absolutely, but we do require a product or service represented by knowledgeable professionals as the primary focus of membership within our groups. If Financial Services are being represented, the representative must be fully and legally licensed to give financial advice. We have recruiting rules just like any other responsible Business Network and we have them for the simple reason that our members are not generally networking with the intention of looking for a new business to invest time and money into.
