The Business Exchange Story

Our chapter was founded in 2008 with the goal of providing affordable state of the art business solutions for our clients. Our members represent various businesses and professions that provide services to all in need.

When a client is referred to a member of our chapter, we provide affordable solutions that will meet the specific needs of that client.

In 2008, we started as three professionals, and we have grown ever since. We encourage you to give any one of our members a call. Whether your challenges are budgetary, time sensitive, or business specific inquiries, our members can help.

Give any one of us a call; there is no obligation.
You have everything to gain and nothing to lose. We also encourage you to visit our group at one of our weekly meetings as our guest at the Majestic Diner (see above for details).

If you rely on me for your business, these are the people I rely on for mine.
