Build referrals through relationships

The MMAC's best-practice networking format offers enormous opportunities for new business. Our Networking Forums are designed for members to build sustainable relationships by developing an in-depth understanding of each other's businesses. Non-competing sales and marketing professionals meet monthly and referral business develops organically.

The MMAC Networking Forum

Join the Networking Forum to expand your business contacts, generate new leads and learn the most effective strategies for networking.

Each Networking Forum group consists of 10-20 sales and marketing executives from diverse industries. After 30-second introductions, participants discuss specific business issues, needs and referrals. Each Networking Forum group determines its own focus and adjusts this format so members get the maximum value out of each and every meeting. In addition to the bi-weekly meetings, participants conduct a one-on-one meeting every other week to build and strengthen relationships and business.

The ideal Forum participant is responsible for revenue generation in a business-to-business industry and should have regular contact with the executive management team of his or her clients. Those participants with a focus on helping others gain the most from this program.

Member Commitment

  • Attend meetings regularly
  • Participate in one-on-ones
