“Referring people we care about to people we trust.” – Dave Dunwody
Mission: Increase business through network referrals, while maintaining the highest standards of integrity, service & quality
LeadShare is an active and structured system for providing and receiving business referrals. It’s well known that networking is one of the best conduits to make business connections and increase profitability. A very personal form of advertising, networking is one of the most cost-effective ways to build sales. This method takes an enthusiastic commitment of time and interest, and it is the cutting edge to networking.
The Louisa Chamber’s LeadShare Group is designed to assist the participants in expanding their business network. The theory behind LeadShare is simple, but it works. The group meets on a regular basis to become acquainted with each other’s businesses and learn what kind of client each is seeking. Leads provided during meetings may generate additional leads or networking opportunities.

We meet at Obrigado Restaurant (109 W. Main Street), entering through the adjacent Floozie’s Pie Shop, at 8:00 am on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month (unless otherwise announced). We spend the first 10 minutes getting coffee, ordering food, and networking with members and guests as they arrive. Around 8 am we are seated and begin the meeting with officer reports from the Leadership team. We then have a 10-minute presentation by one of the members about their business. The next 30 minutes are filled with 45-60 second “infomercials” provided by all members and guests. Then referrals, thank-you’s and special upcoming event information are shared before the meeting is adjourned.
The Louisa Chamber LeadShare program is affiliated with the Louisa County Chamber of Commerce and your business must be a member of the Louisa County Chamber of Commerce or the Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce. You are welcome to be our guest for up to two (2) meetings before becoming a member.
