The members of Emerald City are committed to creating Seattle’s premier business networking and referral association. ECRA provides a positive and professional environment for building your business through referrals and personal growth. We believe that a team, working together achieves more. Only one person from each professional specialty is accepted.

A different approach

Our success is based on the strength of the relationships between the members. Because relationships require time and commitment, we meet once per week for ninety minutes.  Prospective members are evaluated based on their professionalism, competence, and reputation. We accept new teammates only when the members feel confident in their ability to refer their very best clientele. All applications are reviewed by the Leadership Council.  There is an initial application fee and annual membership dues.  Please contact us for details.
