About North County Referrals
North County Referrals (NCR) is an independent group of Business and Professional people. In October of 1983, five people, a Dentist, a Real Estate Agent, an Optician, a Chiropractor, and an independent New Car Salesperson, came together for the sole purpose of getting to know each other and their businesses. We felt this was the best way to be confident in referring business to each other, as well as being a source of referral for others we know that may need their services.
The premise was if we meet once a week for breakfast and get to know each other, we are more likely to feel confident about giving that person a referral. We all had been to other Business Referrals Groups and agreed that we did not like the strict rules of fines for not bringing a guest or giving a referral each week. We knew we could not always give a weekly referral but as often as possible we refer each other.
We started small and grew quickly, averaging 25-30 members. Thirty-eight years late NCR is still going strong!
