BRAG™ is the Sterling Heights Regional Chamber of Commerce’s trademarked referral and networking program that is exclusive to members. It stands for Business Resource Alliance Groups. BRAG™ has been connecting professionals in the business community for over 20 years and is one of the most respected professional referral programs in Michigan.
Did you know that referrals are some of the most valuable leads that you can get? Thousands of referrals are passed between BRAG™ members annually, most are already warm or event hot! Even if the person doing the referral is in a different industry or situation, the referral comes with a lot of trust, that trust is invaluable, and that trust is created through relationship building in weekly BRAG™ meetings.
It is the mission of BRAG™ to continue to develop and grow member businesses by means of personal and professional relationship building, product and service knowledge, and the referral process. BRAG™ aims to assist in the forming and accomplishment of short-term goals through the continued efforts of the Business Resource Alliance Groups to educate its members and improve its status as a viable and successful marketing tool for our member businesses.
It is extremely important that each BRAG™ member maintain the highest standards of business practices when serving fellow members and their referrals. This is especially important since BRAG™ members share referrals from each other’s client base, family, and friends!
The Sterling Heights Regional Chamber of Commerce BRAG™ members provide a positive proactive environment for Chamber members to network in. These members help to enhance the public perception of the Chamber’s principles of good business practices and supports each BRAG™ member by providing excellent product and/or customer service!
BRAG™ is a benefit of Chamber membership and is lower than most other networking groups with a one-time $100 lifetime registration fee which includes registration, a BRAG™ resource kit, and BRAG™ training specific to BRAG™
