We Are What We Do

What ABN Stands For
Alameda Business Network (ABN) is an organization of business professionals that actively promotes each other’s services and products through leads and referrals within our group and through each member’s spheres of influence. These include clients, friends, family, acquaintances and the general public. We champion our fellow ABN members’ business development and vision through periodic business idea exchanges. We support our community by providing community service through fundraising events and charitable activities.
How ABN Works
Each ABN member business “owns” its business category to avoid conflicts of interest when sharing leads, referrals, and business productivity ideas. ABN members promote other ABN member services to their circle of customers, clients, and contacts in exchange for a reciprocal promotion.
If you’re interested in growing your business and in becoming part of an innovative business group, attend one of our regular Tuesday morning breakfast meetings held from 8:45-10AM in the Rathskellar of the Alameda Elks Lodge, 2255 Santa Clara Ave., Alameda.
