Community Involvement

Find the activities that interest you most. It's a great way to meet others and become active in your community.


Community Involvement

One of the best ways to network is by becoming involved in your community. So, where do you start? First, establish a reputation as a trustworthy member of the community. Your reputation is important for many reasons, including the fact that people prefer to work with companies and individuals they can trust. They're more likely to trust someone they know - someone from their own community.

Meet Your Business Neighbors

Introduce yourself, find out about them and their businesses, and get their contact information (or business card). Find out if there are ways you can work together to bring more business to the area.

Become Visible in Your Community

Find a group you’re interested in and volunteer your time. Donate your expertise, or even just a helping hand, to an event or project. Join the board or sit on a committee that’s planning a project or event.

Be Selective

Don’t join a group if you’re not interested. And don’t feel obligated to sign up for multiple volunteering opportunities.

Get Involved and Stay Involved

It’s a good way to demonstrate that you’re truly interested and can be trusted to follow through on your commitment.

Be Creative

There may be networking opportunities that others haven’t thought of and that will work well for you.

Be Yourself

People are more receptive if you’re genuine and don’t try to be someone or something you’re not.
