Welcome to Buckeye Referral Club
About Buckeye Referral Club
We are a unique face-to-face networking group of Central Ohio businesspeople who meet Friday mornings at 9 AM. Our goal at is to help each other get opportunities for more business through qualified referrals. We also enjoy meeting people, making friends, and having fun.
Our meetings are simple but organized:
- We only have one member per category
- We do not have officers, although Troy Fabish of Keller-Williams Commercial/Fabish Group Realty is usually our chair aided by Robert Crouch of Health Markets
- Meetings begin with a networking tip, followed by 60-second introductions. From there, we move to one 20-minute presentation by a member, then to referrals and finally share networking events that happen within the next two weeks or so
- While we value regular attendance there are no “fines” for missing a meeting or other issues or bookkeeping reports and meetings are over by 10 AM
Benefits of Becoming a Member
The Group Dynamic
First, we are a welcoming and helpful group. Membership participation is excellent.
Once the group knows what a new member does and what a good referral is for them, it is virtually certain that the new member will start to get good, qualified referrals – where the referred parties will be expecting a call from the member
Each member regularly gets a chance to give the group a clear idea of what the presenter does and why it would benefit others,
This is also a chance to polish presentation skills, try out new ideas or offers and get constructive from the group
Practice DOES make perfect
We are a fun group, and we enjoy interacting with each other. We move along on business, and don’t waste time, but there’s always room for enjoyment.
Our socials are great fun. They are always at cool spots and allow for group and individual enjoyment
