Our American Mission Community is here to let people know who the members of the community are.
To be considered a part of the community, a member needs to attend at least one meeting per calendar quarter. These listings are not intended to be a marketplace. The community information is an opportunity to make connections and form genuine relationships. Knowing others who are part of the community, enables connections with people who are committed to business growth and can team with you.
You can submit your listing after the first meeting you attend.
