Best Practice Groups (BPG’s) are small groups of CABB members that meet on a monthly basis to share knowledge and best practices, with the goal of increasing each other’s capabilities, mutual trust and support, and results. A Group Moderator (GM) selects members and schedules and moderates the meetings. Each group has 4-6 members from non-competing market areas with a range of backgrounds and experience levels. Groups can be industry agnostic or industry-specific (e.g. restaurants).

Meetings are monthly, for one hour, via video conference. Example discussion topics: best practices, goal setting and accountability, group consulting, case studies, presentations by members.

TO JOIN A GROUP

  1. Find an open group (see above)
  2. Contact one or more Group Moderators to apply. Provide your
    • name,
    • city,
    • years as a business broker,
    • background,
    • target market area, and
    • what you hope to gain from joining.
  3. Your Find A Broker profile will be reviewed, so be sure that it is complete and up to date before you apply.
  4. The GM will let you know if you are accepted into their group or not. GM’s have full authority over group membership.
  5. CABB cannot guarantee that you will be accepted into a group. If you are unable to get into a group, notify the Committee Chair, who will provide your contact information to new GM’s as new groups are formed. Please be patient! Since this is a pilot program, space is limited, and it will take us a while to work out the kinks and open new groups.
