The group has operated successfully since 1995 as the first Waterloo Region chapter of a large business networking organization.
In 2000 the executive team wanted to make some these details changes that the organization would not allow, so the group broke away and has been independent since then.
At the groups peak, the membership exceeding 40 businesses but that was deemed too unwieldy for the timeframe allocated for the weekly meetings and now it runs with less members
At various times over the years the group has official website met at McGinnis Front Row, East Side Mario's and for the past eight years have met for breakfast at The Dearborn Restaurant.
As well as being a business networking group there has been a long tradition of organizing social opportunities for the members and their spouses to participate and get to know other members of the group better.
