MORE ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF NFP MEMBERSHIP To achieve your professional and business goals, you need to network. And there's no better way to network than with Networking for Professionals. We offer online networking combined with the effectiveness of face-to-face meetings and events. See real results like:
- improving your client base
- increasing your business exposure
- expanding your professional and business network
- making high caliber contacts
- receiving better quality referrals
- being presented with new business opportunities
Your professional profile is the first step, and it gets you exposure the moment it's posted online. Your profile is like a mini web page describing your business to the NFP community and others browsing the site. Your profile can include a photo, and any articles you've written. You can even feature a business related video in your profile, create your own Contact Lists, Bookmark & Endorse members and build your own address book from our Member Directory which offers easy access to member contact information and any Member-to-Member discounts.
(All members receive a complimentary listing in our Business Directory.)
After creating your profile, you'll review profiles of other members and decide who to contact. Search member profiles by profession, location, or any keyword you choose!
You can begin making new contacts immediately and easily build your business network from your home or office, any time that's convenient. For more TIPS on how to network online at NFP see
Online Tips For Members
As a member you'll enjoy discounts or free access to some NFP events like our "Power Lunch", "High Speed Networking" and "Shakers & Stirrers" Business Mixers, where members and other professionals meet in a variety of network-focused settings. Your NFP membership can more than pay for itself just by attending one NFP event!
As a member you won't need to worry if you've met an important contact at a past event and misplaced their business card. Just make sure to register online and you'll enjoy instant easy access to list of attendees from past events you've been to - simply click on your Event History in your member profile. We'll also email you the list of attendees after the event so you can follow up with your new contacts.

POD MEMBERSHIP (Includes a Regular Membership)
POD membership includes everything in a Regular Membership ( i.e. Online Networking and discounts to all NFP events). In addition when you join a POD you'll be a member of a focused group of successful and supportive professionals who meet once every two weeks. Pod members are your best business allies. They'll help you brainstorm business ideas and look to leverage their networks to refer you an ongoing source of business over time. PODS can be general (open to all professionals) or they can be specific (tailored to certain professionals, e.g. entrepreneurs, etc). Prospective members visit the POD they are seeking to join and must be approved by both the POD and NFP before their Membership Application can be processed (Membership Applications forms are available at all PODS). Pod Memberships are paid annually by check and a one year commitment is required. For Pod Membership rates click here. To find out more about NFP PODS click here.
"Thank you for another great event, last night’s ‘Shakers and Stirrers’ (NYC). As with the ‘Power Lunch’ earlier this month, I met face-to-face with a diverse group of professionals, learned what they do, as well as had the opportunity to introduce our business travel service, available to anyone who owns or works in a small to medium-sized business.... I left the Power Lunch with a new client plus three firm appointments and sixteen contacts....I left last night’s ‘Shakers and Stirrers’ with three firm appointments and twelve new contacts...."
