New networking group established

To enhance the networking capabilities in this area, a new business networking group has been started for Kendall, DeKalb and LaSalle counties. The group is named “Grassroots Networking Group” and will hold meetings at 8 a.m. every Wednesday. Resource Bank has offered its community room in the Somonauk branch for the meetings.

Those who want to expand their business, hone skills and learn how to effectively network through affiliation with like-minded business people should attend.

Interaction will be encouraged. First, through weekly rotating 20-minute presentations and sharing of qualified leads. Each week there also will be a "brief encounter" with one member sharing a 5-minute informational talk of general interest. At the end of the hour, meetings close with 30-second “commercials” from each attendee.

The group was established through the meetup.com website, and details can be found there.
