Members are encouraged to open their own personal and business networks to the organization to help find new prospects, event attendees, and corporate sponsors. In addition, an Advisory Council is a collection of individuals who bring unique knowledge and skills which augment the knowledge and skills of the formal Board of Directors in order to more effectively guide the organization.
