PODs were developed as a way to help ACG Dallas/Ft Worth members better leverage their membership. A POD is a smaller networking group created with the sole purpose of helping members develop relationships and refer business.
How PODs work is simple:
One or two members sponsor the POD, 8 to 10 other members join, and these members meet on a regular basis to build relationships, trade industry intelligence, and share new business leads.
Most PODs meet monthly and stay intact for several years in order to build greater depth & breadth with each member.
PODs are meant to be category exclusive for the members, so each has more depth of reach. (ex. only one Due Diligence professional per POD)
We're kicking off PODs being industry agnostic, but with the goal of growing and evolving into industry specific! Potential PODs:
Aerospace & Defense
Manufacturing & Distribution
*Note: PODs are restricted to ACG DFW Members only.
