The First Friday Breakfast Networking Group, held at the Farmington Valley YMCA in Granby, is a Business-to-Business networking and connections group. It is a great way to meet other local business owners.
The meetings offer opportunities for sharing information about your business, as well as references.
Supported by the Granby Chamber of Commerce, Bradley Regional Chamber of Commerce, Suffield Chamber of Commerce, and the Farmington Valley YMCA.
BNI members, on average, increase their business 20% the first year. Our chapter is a dynamic, committed group of business people who know how to refer business to each other.
We have open categories for individuals who will bring enthusiasm and integrity to our meeting. Just one person per professional specialty is allowed in each chapter.
Search our members here to see if your category is open, then visit a meeting and lock out your competition!
Come for our meeting — stay for the referrals!!!

This group is for anyone looking to grow their business while helping their fellow members grown their own businesses as well.
We are a focused, productive, friendly group of business people who come together every Tuesday morning to help each other develop business. Only one person from an industry can become a member of our group, but visitors are always welcome.
Each member has the opportunity each week to make a one-minute presentation about themselves and their business and to request leads from the other group members. This is a very dynamic and powerful exercise that yields many referrals among the members per week.
At this time we are looking to expand our group by identifying local business people who know the value of developing relationships and the power of business development through giving and getting good, qualified referrals.
For our planning purposes, please RSVP. Also feel free to ask us any questions you may have. We meet at the Connecticut Institute of Finance; Tuesdays at 7:15 AM for 1 1/2 hrs.
