Do You Belong in a Network in Action Group?

Network in Action (NIA) is a special way to be part of a business networking group. As a brand, Network in Action has two primary purposes:

  • Provide more and more resources to help members grow their businesses
  • Create an avenue for members to collaborate to support philanthropic projects of their choosing

If you think you belong in NIA, use this Google form to communicate your intention to join.

We Expect A Little…. and A LOT

How can Network in Action expect both A Little and A Lot of its members? Well, we only require that members attend 1 member meeting each month. We provide many additional options for socials, networking, and education, but only the monthly member meeting is required. In addition to that, members must only make one referral to another member and have one 1:1 meeting with another member each month. In other words, NIA does not intend to treat its members like children hovering over weekly report cards.

That being said, NIA expects that each member has a Go-Give attitude and desires to help each other be successful. We expect that members have a generous spirit in that direction. We expect that each member far exceeds the required minimums to pour out value to other members.

These are the kinds of values and qualities we expect from NIA candidates and members.
