Member Agreement to Policies and Code of Ethics & Referral Commission
Erudites Networking Group, based in New York, is a global business network of professionals, supporting business growth through advocacy and referrals.
Our mission is to provide a vehicle to promote the growth of our respective businesses, while also giving back philanthropically to our communities.
Our strategy is to develop quality relationships with each other, and with our business connections that advance those relationships.
All interested business professionals are welcome to attend a networking meeting, and then decide if they would like to apply for membership.
Upon joining, members will be part of a global community of talented professionals and resources, working collaboratively to refer and close business.
Benefits include: Access to networking meetings held every other Tuesday, from 4 pm to 5:30 pm EST via zoom, invitations to Mastermind meetings, invitations to curated events to support business growth, opportunities to volunteer and give back to support our communities, non-profit and charities through philanthropic initiatives, and continuing education, business, and career resources.
The first visit is complimentary. Any person interested in joining must announce their intent to join the group as a certain profession or business. Applicants complete and submit an online application for approval, along with the membership fee. Applicants are invited to have 2-3 peer interviews.
In the event there are members belonging to the same or similar profession, we will have mutual conversations to agree and avoid any potential referral conflicts.
Members should represent their primary profession or business as stated in their application.
Members should arrive on time and stay for the entire meeting. This includes being active and participating in zoom calls. Attendance and participation is crucial to the group. If you miss more than 3 meetings per quarter, repeated absences may result in your position being opened. A member may take medical leave (with notification) if their fees are prepaid for that period of time and they attempt to have someone "fill in" during their leave.
