Through an emphasis on education, developing skills for business growth, and mutual support, we build strong business relationships with each other in a professional, honest and ethical manner. Our members benefit through qualified referrals, networking and business skill development, an expanded business network, and opportunities to serve the community.

 

Our Purpose

We will provide an environment where business people have opportunities to be introduced to each other and to share in common goals and development efforts. We seek to build trust and confidence in each other as business people, so that we can recommend members’ products and services to our respective network of clients, prospects, and partners. Our measurement of success will be based on how our members’ respective businesses grow due to their involvement with the Cabarrus Business Network.

Code of Conduct & Bylaws

  1. As business people, it is paramount that we conduct ourselves with integrity and honesty in our business dealings. We wish to lead by example, and to treat each other and our respective clients and customers in the way we would wish to be treated.
  2.  Business between members, where appropriate, is encouraged. However, simply prospecting the group with sales pitches is discouraged. This tactic is short sighted, distracting to the goals of the group, and not welcome. It misses the real benefit of participating in a networking group.
  3. When members conduct business with each other, it is expected that they do so in a fashion that keeps the reputation of the Cabarrus Business Network untarnished. Ethical behavior is expected, and the board is committed to a high level of expectation in this area.
  4. We seek to create an environment that is professional, honest, and ethical in all our dealings. As members, our dealings with each other, with our customers, vendors, and partners should reflect these goals.
  5. Issues between members should be addressed by and between the members themselves, in a professional way, with a commitment to preserve the reputation of the Cabarrus Business Network in the community.
  6. Concerns may be raised for the board’s consideration, but the board will seek to review any issues in light of the overall good of the network, not individual members. Where the reputation of the Cabarrus Business Network is at risk, the board reserves the right to take appropriate action, which can include active involvement in resolution of the issue (when and where the issue can affect the reputation of the group), up to and including removal of membership.
