The Exchange LA is where driven professionals and accomplished leaders establish their personal brands, build their online presence, collaborate with and give back to their communities, refer business opportunities and extend their network.
OWN YOUR BRAND
Once upon a time all it took was a logo, a business card, and a yellow pages ad to establish a brand, but now creating a brand goes far beyond the printed collateral to help you stand out from the crowd. The Exchange offers exclusive hosted panels, coaching circles and online content to help you get the most out of your brand
BE A DIGITAL LEADER
BUILD ONLINE PRESENCE
Between instant build sites like Wix, Squarespace, and WordPress, anyone can create a website. But today building a web-presence goes much further than that. Collaborate with your peers in real time about digital strategies and practices that are working for you and your business. Learn marketing and advertising practices and get insights on what’s working for other professionals.
ALWAYS GIVE BACK
AND GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
We’re committed to philanthropy. That means not only do we welcome and encourage our non-profit partners to present at quarterly events and mixers, but we offer discounted membership to nonprofit staff, offer volunteer opportunities to our members, and help provide a portal for community members to join boards of local nonprofit organizations.
REFER AND GET REFERRED
REFER BUSINESS PPORTUNITIES
Referrals build business. Not just for the recipient, but by helping us build credibility as a resource to our clients. That’s why referring business is absolutely critical to our success and we’re focused on paying it forward.
GROW YOUR NETWORK
EXTEND THEIR NETWORK
You already have a solid network of business colleagues, clients and co-workers making your business strong, but extending your network can help grow your business exponentially. That’s why The Exchange will start off with 4 chapters, and plans on expanding to host 10+ chapters by the end of 2017.

I am proud to partner with The Exchange because I prefer to refer business to people I know and trust. Because The Exchange provides a format to dive in and really get to know your fellow Exchange members, a lot of commerce is done within and among the various group members. I also prefer to refer to individuals who are proud to give back to the community and, since The Exchange places an emphasis on involvement of non-profit organizations, you can find many such individuals.
