Business Alliance Groups are the Chamber’s popular lead generation and referral networks. These groups have helped hundreds of professionals gain a competitive advantage in the San Diego marketplace. Group members meet twice a month to collaborate on sales techniques, presentation skills, strategic partnerships, referral exchange, professional relationships, and more.
