The Suwanee Network

The Suwanee Network was formed by a group of small business owners to create an affiliation of professionals committed to the true concept of business networking. It was their belief that to become a member of this new networking group, an applicant had to come to the meeting table with something other than "their own appetite". We have all experienced too many "networking" meetings wherein the individuals present were only trying to sell their service/product to the other attendees. They were not really interested in helping others.

Meets: Every Wednesday at 8:30 AM at Atlanta Flooring and Design Centers, 3665 Swiftwater Park Drive.
