What makes the 723 networking group so different from all the rest? Well, a number of things:

  1. 723 is committed, as a group, to supporting the community and civic projects
  2. 723 is committed to helping local businesses
  3. Most active members of 723, as individuals, volunteer their time and energy to community causes and events
  4. Speakers at 723 meetings are from all over the community, not just from the networking group–check out the impressive list from the last year or so (in no particular order, not a complete listing):
