You can feel confident doing business with any of our outstanding members. We carefully screen prospective members to make sure that every business slot is filled with an outstanding person we will want to refer business to. Peruse the members in each team above.

The Way We Are

President John Hoke, Vice President Marty Brix, and Secretary/Treasurer Shawn MoodieWe bring together a committed, diverse, enthusiastic group of professionals dedicated to developing each member's professional strengths so that each referral received through our networking group leads to closed business. Our relationships transcend our weekly meeting, creating a broad based foundation of trust built on each member's integrity and desire to draw friendships from within the group, and clients from around the Capital Region, across the country and throughout the world.
