Our Board of Directors

The BAG Networking "Business Associates Group"‪ is made up of volunteers that generously give their time and efforts to help make a difference in the community. Your tax-deductible donations allow us to continue to assist charities, organizations, and individuals within our community. ‪100% of the proceeds from our events stay right here in the communities we serve and all donations are taken directly to the benefactor's headquarters. To further support our "Friends in Business" we only use privately owned venues and local artists. For our events, we deliberately keep our ticket prices low so that all can enjoy and stress our dress code as "It Is Not About What You Are Wearing,‪🎩👗📸❤️🌎It Is About How Much You Are Caring". We are an established 501c3 Non-Profit professional networking group that promotes business, charity, and philanthropy within the San Diego, Orange, and Riverside County communities. Membership is Free. This group meets every 2nd Tuesday of the month from 5:30-8:30pm allowing its members to build a strong rapport within a diverse business population.

We currently meet at Jimmy O's, 225 15th St, Del Mar, CA 92014

(please consult your tax advisor on how your tax deductions may apply).
