We love BCA! It is a pleasure and honor to be part of an organization that is so dedicated to relationship building at the highest level. As a successful bank, relationship banking and referrals have been one of the keys to our success. We leverage BCA as a platform to connect with the business community, develop the relationships where we can collaborate to create a win-win for all parties, and make an impact on our community. BCA is a part of who we are at National Bank of Arizona."
Deborah Bateman, Executive Vice President
National Bank of Arizona
While most firms in our industry are downsizing and cutting overhead to survive, especially when it comes to their marketing budgets, we have taken a strategic approach to “buck that trend” and expand during these difficult economic times. Over our thirty-six year history, we have survived previous downturns and even though each cycle is different, we believe that investing now in areas to strengthen our core business model, will prove beneficial in years ahead. Adding to our already strong infrastructure of people and resources has been our plan for the past eighteen (18) months. Eventually we believe this economy will change, and by being a member of Business Clubs America NOW, we are adding to that foundation and setting up the relationships NOW to not only be ahead of the curve as a company but offer our clients exceptional resources not available to our competitors."
David Genovese, President
"As many members of the BCA, we have belonged to several referral groups over the years; we have seen many levels of participation with both solid and empty leads. We looked at this occasion to participate in the BCA, not as a lead group, but as a true business opportunity to develop strong personal relationships with decision makers in corporations we would like to develop as partners."
"FlexPrint has been a member since May of last year. We have found the organization to be a great way to grow our business. We have made many connections (and entered into business relationships) with other members and those in other members’ networks. I have belonged to many networking organizations in the past….this organization definitely is the best at delivering results to the membership."
"I am happy to talk about the benefits I see in leveraging Business Clubs America membership to grow a business. I continue to develop many key business relationships and have received business myself.
"The reason I invested in this program was its unique approach of ensuring that the members get a significant return on our investments. There are many organizations in the marketplace to choose from, but very few like BCA that are committed to sharing business. Leads groups are targeted at the wrong level, Chamber events are often just gatherings without a specific purpose, and trade shows are about marketing. While they may all have their purpose, I was looking for something that could generate sales for my team, and allow me to help take care of the concerns of others looking to do the same.
"We started seeing a return on our investment even before we joined the club. While attending an event as a Guest, we were able to share our unique business model with companies we otherwise would have never thought to call on. Now as a Member, we continue to grow new relationships and business."

Business Clubs America (BCA) is a national business development organization that focuses on building relationships, increasing sales, and promoting member businesses within each locally managed market. Hosting multiple events both large and small, providing warm referrals, and facilitating face to face introductions differentiates BCA from other typical networking associations.
