Gilbert Chamber Referral Team Quarterly Update

It's all about relationships! The Gilbert Chamber's Referral Teams are formed by local business owners and employees, with no more than one member from any given industry. The goal of each team (5 teams) is to help generate business referrals for others within the group.

The system is ideal for both new businesses working to establish themselves and for established businesses looking to expand and generate new contacts.

Eligibility: Represented businesses must hold a Gilbert Chamber membership at or above the Business Level, provide regular and valid business referrals, and adhere to the Referral Team guidelines.

Last quarter, from July 1st through September 30th, 2022, our five referral teams have been working hard at building those relationships with one another. The Chamber launched its new Referral Team Recognition Program on July 1st, and we have our first winners to announce. This program is helping our businesses to really strive for and achieve excellence! The combined total for the amount of closed business received within all five teams for the last quarter was $2,485,008! We have shown quarter over quarter, that the more time you spend on getting to know your teammates outside of the weekly meeting, the more warm introduction referral is given out to one another. Here in Gilbert it truly is all about relationships!
