Back to our Fall schedule: Staying connected

   Keith Knight 

The majority of our CCBF chapters took a summer break, skipping July and/or August meetings. Some chapters continued to meet throughout the summer, and some even planned additional social activities to stay in touch.

Studies show that the most ideal frequency for regular meetings is every two or three weeks. That creates enough of a connection so that people feel as though they 'belong'.

When you meet just once a month -- I know; that's our CCBF model! -- you barely feel connected. That is why, in areas where there is more than one chapter, we encourage participants to attend both.

Having said all that, welcome to September and a resumption of our monthly meetings. You are encouraged to dive in, to attend all the meetings, and to meet socially over coffee between meetings.

CCBF focuses on creating environments where Christian business and professional leaders can gather ... for mutual support, for networking, and for leadership development. We are, in essence, your safety net.

And if you aren't yet a CCBF member, please consider joining so that we can continue doing this important work.

The CCBF continues to respond to local requests to create new chapters. As soon as there is a local leadership team of two or three people , we create a new chapter. Vancouver is off and running; Kingston ON resumes their monthly schedule next week; Barrie ON is expected to get off the ground next month; several new groups are in the works later in the fall.  


Want to start a new group in your community? Just ask. Send me an email.
