Founder Mark O’Donnell incorporated best practices gathered through years of experience in networking. He designed the RGA model to:
- Feature weekly networking meetings that welcomed everyone and created value for members and guests.
- Allow business owners to meet and get to like, know, and trust each other.
- Create an environment where referrals are voluntary and based on willingness, not mandatory quotas.
- Host fun and effective after-hours events that welcome both members and non-members, and partner with other local networking groups to maximize local business exposure.
- Build the knowledge base and skill set of members by offering high-quality business seminars through weekly speakers and monthly RGA University Seminars
