The CRICC LEADS Groups provide focused opportunities for members to connect with other businesses and business leaders within the community to share best practices, build business relationships and generate referrals.

LEADS Groups are an exclusive opportunity for Central RI Chamber Members in good standing.

  • LEADS Groups are comprised of businesses that can benefit by collaborating and supporting each other.  One representative per business category.
  • LEADS Groups meet twice a month for 60-90 minutes.
  • Meetings start on time.
  • If a member misses two meetings in a quarter or two meetings consecutively, they will be removed from the roster and their business category opened to a member on the waiting list.
  • The greatest benefit is gained by getting to know individual members in the LEADS Group.
    Members are encouraged to meet outside of traditional meetings. The better you know each other, the better you can recommend them without hesitation. Referrals are built on trust and people do business with those they know and trust.
