Centre Wellington Chamber of Commerce

Chamber Plus Networks


The Chamber Plus Networking (CPN) is a program that runs successfully in many communities and acts as the catalyst for business. The category of activity in any one CPN group is exclusive – for example only 1 realtor or computer business. Although you could have 2 banks or insurance agents however there is agreement about what category each one focuses on, for example, personal or commercial banking or investments.

The sole purpose of CPN is to increase business through a structured system of leads and referrals. Membership is based on ‘Contact Circles’. A Contact Circle (CC) is defined as a business or profession that naturally provide a source of referrals for one another. Each CPN group can have several different ‘Contact Circles’. They are in some way related, but non-competitive businesses. A ‘Home Services’ Contact Circle might include – alarm and security services, lawn maintenance, plumber, painter and an electrician. Membership in the CPN is exclusive to each service and is built on trust within the group. The members create a structure comprised of Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Membership Committee and other positions as required. The various CC’s work together to provide synergy to the entire CPN.

The first Centre Wellington CPN group currently meets for breakfast, Wednesday mornings at The Gorge Country Kitchen beginning at 7:45 am.

The second Centre Wellington CPN group currently meets for lunch, Monday afternoons at the Goofie Newfie beginning at 12 noon.

During the meeting, members have an opportunity to introduce themselves and provide a brief business update. A different business is showcased each week. Each meeting is approximately one hour long.

Benefits of participating in the CPN program include exchanging business referrals (i.e. an electrician doing work on a home renovation, if asked by the home owner, may be able to refer a painter – or vice-versa). This form of business networking is unique and focused on growth for all of the businesses involved. The program is ideal for small business and entrepreneurs who have the flexibility to take advantage of the immediacy of referrals and contacts. Being a member of a CPN group also expands knowledge and awareness of other businesses and ideas.
