Presenters - At each meeting, we typically showcase two members. They will have a total
minutes to present and educate us more about their business and share how we, as members, can become
outstanding referral sources for them!
Referrals - We only pass warm referrals at Synergy National. By building each other up, the prospective client
can't wait until the Synergy Member calls to make contact.
Expectations - We do not expect you to pass referrals as a guest, but you are welcome to do so if you know of
someone who wants a product or service which our members offer.
Value - Take note of the number of referrals being announced and passed, as we will talk about the VALUE of
the referrals during the announcement portion of the meeting.
Build a warm referral system through
proven and tested system provides you with more than just cold leads!
You Never Know Who People

National's "Chapters" are exclusive groups that have formed to do business with
each other and pass warm referrals. The chapters only have one professional per category and each
professional only belongs to one referral based networking group. However, all chapter members are welcome
to belong to other Chambers, Rotaries, Church groups, and other civic organizations.
National has "Sub Groups" (such as a Real Estate Power Partner Group and two Business Development Groups along
with our proprietary Synergy Academy). These groups are sub-groups of the chapters and focus on developing business systems and
marketing campaigns to generate increased revenue for each member. You must be a member of a chapter to
participate in a Sub Group.
