Tuesday Sept 20th 11:15-12:45 Network with Results International will meet at WareHouse ’23, 100 Columbia St., Vancouver, WA 98660 . Network With Results International (NWRI) Fort Vancouver chapter has expanded so much, we needed a bigger space. So we found one at WareHouse ’23! If you would like to be part of a like-minded group of professionals looking to pass leads and network without the high costs, you have come to the right place. Why? A NWRI business networking chapter is unlike any other networking groups in town. It’s more like attending a multi-chamber networking event once a week, every week — only better. NWRI will save you hundreds of dollars in membership fees and countless hours per year in travel time. Compared to other networking groups, you’ll meet multiple business members all in one place, all at the same time for the same economical price as if you joined only one chapter. Our chapters are limited to three members in the same specialty but from different companies. That means if another chapter is not capped in your industry, you can cross promote your services. This makes NWRI one of the most productive and valuable networking environments you can attend. We mean business.
