What to Expect at a North Council Luncheon

Before Council meetings start, members network and make connections. Self-introductions often start the meeting. Typical agenda items include a keynote speaker, a spotlight speaker promoting their business, members thanking other members for doing business together, and door prize giveaways. Members enjoy a meal together. Afterwards many members stay to network and plan follow up conversations.

  1. Bring business cards, your name tag
  2. Bring a door prize to promote your business
  3. Be prepared to provide a 10-15 second self-introduction
  4. You can support our scholarship program for just $5 and have the chance to win cash in our 50/50 drawing. 

Spotlight Speaker

Spotlight Speaker is a wonderful benefit of Council membership. For just $25, you have the opportunity to promote your business in front of 30-40 people through a dedicated 5 minute presentation.

You and your company also will be featured on the North Council website, social media pages and monthly e-newsletter. Lastly, this role enables you to distribute your company materials at each attendee table.
