Goldmine Referral Groups are currently offered within the Chamber. These are weekly business referral groups that are represented by Chamber Member businesses in different categories. The meetings are roundtable facilitated meetings with set questions to help relationship build, exchange business leads/referrals and opportunities for each group member to speak/present to the group and pass business cards/flyers weekly.
The goal is relationship building and business referrals.
If you are interested in signing up for a Goldmine Group seat/category please fill out/email your choice back.
We promise you will not be disappointed! Member and non-member guests are always welcome to attend and check out any of the groups before joining.

Home-base Goldmine Seat/Category:
As a paid/current member in the Cuyahoga Falls Chamber of Commerce you may participate in the Goldmine Group(s) of your choice as long as your seat/category is available. Once you select a Goldmine group you then will declare this to that Goldmine Group that this is your Home-base Goldmine Seat/Category. This protects your seat/category in this particular group. Regular attendance is required to keep/maintain this seat/category. If you do not show to meetings without any communication to the facilitator/Chamber Office your seat/category will be opened up. See full attendance requirements.
Cross-over Goldmine Seat/Category:
To be a cross-over Goldmine Member you have to pick and declare a “home-base” Goldmine Group. SEE ABOVE. Once you have a home-base seat/category secured you may then cross-over into any of the other Goldmine Groups (with notice) as long as those seat/categories are open. You may do this until another Chamber Member wants that same seat/category as their home-base seat/category. At that time you will give up the cross-over seat/category. *If your seat/category is filled in all the Goldmine Groups we will add you to the list to start another group pending interest. We will need your help in starting another group. It takes a minimum of 10 Chamber Members to start a successful group. *Please note you may be asked to share/split your seat/category with another Goldmine group member if you offer multiple services. This is so that everyone has a chance to participate. Examples: Mortgage Services/Banking, Ad Specialties/Printing, Financial Services/Insurance to name a few. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation on this.
I agree to maintain my Cuyahoga Falls Chamber of Commerce membership in good standing. I understand that I am entitled to exclusivity in one professional category and that I will be listed in our group’s brochure with that category. I agree to make every effort to attend weekly meetings and promote the growth and success of the group as a whole. I understand that if I miss more than 3 meetings in a QUARTER in the year that my membership in Goldmine Networking will be subject to review by the group.
