Local Networking


Not exactly sure how it would work out but I had a thought:

I've recently been looking for a new plumbing sub because our current plumber is not keeping up with our level of quality or cleanliness. We have gotten a few referrals of other plumbers but I'm not a big fan of "experimenting" with new guys on the customers dime.

I think it would be great to find other local pros here on CT to get to know better and possibly sub some work to or vise versa. Maybe have a networking forum that is broken up by state or for the larger states separated by counties or regions within that state.

Any thoughts on this?

Re: Local Networking


Sounds plausible at first blush, but I think it would be a bit unwieldy. We do already have the Help Wanted/Looking for Work section.

Too many sections in a forum is just as bad in many ways as too few.

Re: Local Networking


Doesn't seem like there is much interest in it. Guess I'll stick with asking at the supply houses.
