Creative Networking Professionals (CNP) is a networking group designed to increase your exposure to many other people and businesses. Belonging to CNP is like having a sales force working for you. CNP’s purpose is to help facilitate trusting business relationships through word of mouth referrals.

What you should know

- Only one person from each professional specialty is permitted to join CNP.

- CNP meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 8 a.m. at JoJo's Rise and Wine (12501 Nicollet Ave #100) in Burnsville, MN. Meetings are promptly started at 8am and are kept under 1 hour in duration.

- Agendas are discussed and then each professional delivers a 60 second or less commercial or overview of what he or she does, or what their company does. Members who have any referrals pass them along to the appropriate parties.

- By attending the meetings you will build trust with other members of CNP and start getting their referrals, as well as you giving out your referrals to other members of the group. ( A referral is anything from knowing a friend or acquaintance that needs the services of a CNP member, to a referral about some sort of insight that might be of value to another member of CNP).

- As a general rule, each member makes an effort to bring at least 1 referral per meeting.

- All participants should represent their primary occupation, not a part-time business.

- Attendance is critical. If you cannot attend a meeting, you may send a substitute. This will not count as an absence. Only 3 absences are allowed per year, on the 4th absence your membership with CNP will be terminated.

Cost

CNP was established to create success for everyone that becomes a member, not as a profit making business. Becoming a CNP member involves a very low, annual fee of $50 to cover print and internet expenses. If you are committed to CNP and your profession, this is truly one of the best ways to guarantee your success.
