Being a part of the Greater Irvine Chamber of Commerce (GICC) is good for business. And our Leads Groups have the numbers to prove it.

GICC members have closed more the $8.5 million in sales, at the end of the 2016 fiscal year, as a direct result of referrals shared by fellow members also participating in the Chamber’s leads groups.

Each Leads Group is comprised of 25-30 individuals that meet twice a month in non-competing industries to help each other with referral exchange as well as selling techniques, presentation skills, recruiting, strategic partnerships, and professional relationships.
