Synergy Business Connections | Passionate People with Personality

Rules & Guidelines

Synergy Business Connections

  1. Meetings are 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month from 10 am to 11:00 am at the Chamber office. First meeting of month usually lasts until 11:15.
  2. Troikas are a priority benefit of Synergy membership. Business cards will be collected at the beginning of each meeting and troikas will be announced before the end of the meeting. Members may request to be paired after introductions. Business cards of everyone present at the meeting will usually be mailed the same day. Members must be present at the meeting to be assigned to a troika. It is highly recommended that members schedule troikas before leaving the meeting. Of course, anyone may initiate a meeting with any member at any time. For ease of scheduling, members might want to consider meeting either at 10:00 am on alternate Thursdays from regular Synergy meetings or before or after the regular meetings. Please be respectful of keeping your troika appointment and advise others in advance so an alternate can be invited.
  3. Business categories are protected within the Synergy group. When there is a potential business overlap, those members are encouraged to discuss their specific areas of concentration to determine how to avoid a conflict. For example, two attorneys may decide that one will focus on family law and the other on business law, even though each may actually practice in multiple areas.
  4. Members should send their complete contact information (+ photo) to Jim Nagy for inclusion on the Synergy website.
  5. Members are expected to attend meetings regularly. In the event of prolonged absence (6 consecutive meetings), the member will be contacted (at least three times in writing) to determine whether they intend to continue as a member and to protect their business category. If there is no response, the category will be released. No refund of annual membership dues will be given.
  6. Any member interested in contributing to the ‘steering committee’ may join the meeting at 9:00 the first Thursday of each month.
  7. Membership dues are $95/year.

COMMERCIAL TENANTS: SHOULD YOU PAY RENT DURING THIS CRISIS?

In my opinion, the answer is generally no; don’t pay your rent for now. Why?  Because it’s probably the only leverage you have over your landlord right now, and it is good leverage which most tenants don’t typically have with a landlord.  If you pay your rent as usual, why would a landlord offer you any kind of help? I have been receiving many calls from business owners from existing clients and those that are becoming new clients related to what they should do regarding their...

Tenant Rent Abatement During This Crisis

Many businesses are experiencing the same income drop that you and I are. While the above statement is true, the landlords probably won’t give a rent reduction of any kind because they are going to have losses also as many businesses, especially in retail centers, will go out of business. It doesn’t hurt to ask your landlord for a rent reduction, but you are going to have to prove your income drop, which is not normally something you do in advance, but rather in arrears after many...

Some messages from our group...

What makes the Conejo Valley special, unique or interesting?

I like to call Thousand Oaks "the biggest little town in the country." Even though its size is well over 100,000 residents, it still has a small town feel. You are liable to see someone you know every time you go out. I also like the fact that it has protected itself from the blight that has ruined so many other communities in Southern California by restricting things such as billboards, building structure and height, paid parking lots, and corner strip malls.
