Friday Morning Business-to-Business Strategic Alliance

8:00 - 9:15 am every Friday

Cobb County Police Precinct 5 Station
4640 Dallas Highway
Powder Springs 30127
MAP

Friday B2B (Business-to-Business) Strategic Alliance is a business advisory group.
As such, members develop strong ties with one another that may lead to business referrals as a natural course of meetings over time. This is NOT primarily a business referrals group. The group discusses, in a confidential environment, issues a member may be having with growing and operating their business, acting as an informal board of directors for one another. Because of the confidential nature of these discussion topics, the group is limited to a single person in each business industry category.

Seats are filled by the individual, not the company. A potential member's position with his/her business should include responsibility for developing strategic initiatives (e.g. business owners, sales managers, marketing directors, etc.).  Guests are welcome to attend up to three meetings before submitting a membership application.

To qualify for admission to this group, your primary focus must be on developing strategies for your company, intended to build your Business-to-Business clientele. Please contact our Membership Committee to see what industry classifications are available and/or to answer any other questions.

Membership in the B2B Strategic Alliance is free to WCBA members. Take advantage of this terrific opportunity to grow your business!

Read the Guiding Principles of the B2B Strategic Alliance. View the current B2B Roster.
