EARN, the Elgin Area Referral Network, is an Elgin Area Chamber members-only opportunity for you to network and eventually grow your business. EARN groups are composed of non-competing businesses that get together on alternate weeks for breakfast or lunch to generate new business for fellow members through a system of referrals and leads. By meeting frequently, the businesses become well-acquainted and build trust. In time, leads are referred, and there is a greater opportunity for sales to be generated. Members also increase their visibility, their knowledge of the community, and their general knowledge of business. Members are obligated to attend the scheduled referral meetings, provide referrals and leads, report results, and pay an annual administrative fee in a timely manner. Food and beverage are available for purchase as we meet at a local restaurant. Currently, the Chamber’s three EARN groups have a limited number of openings. Each group offers a different operating style, from casual to highly structured. EARN III meets every other Thursday morning from 7:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. at a local restaurant. To put your business on the list for joining EARN or for more information, please contact Carol Gieske at 847-741-5660 or via
