About Porter County Business League

The Porter County Business League has been generating leads for members since 1991. At that time, several of our founding members belonged to a "national" networking group and realized they weren’t getting much in return for dues sent faithfully to the group’s corporate office. And so, the Porter County Business League was chartered as a 501-c non-profit organization. All dues collected stay right where they belong …with our membership – locally!

This "keep it local" approach allows PCBL to award grants to area organizations that support business education and entrepreneurship. Dues are also used to promote the League.

The Porter County Business League members are guaranteed exclusivity in their business category. Membership is open to any business or organization located in or doing business in Porter County, Indiana.

The League meets every Thursday at 7:00 a.m. for breakfast. Currently we meet at Suzie's Cafe & Catering in Valparaiso (1050 Southpoint Circle Valparaiso, IN 46385). The meetings are about one hour in length and include networking time, member "commercials", referral sharing and featured member speakers. Occasionally the League may invite a non-member to speak on a topic of interest to the group.

If you are a business owner, sales professional or entrepreneur with an appetite for growth, we invite you to attend a meeting to find out if PCBL is the right networking and lead-generating group for you. Start growing your business with qualified referrals and the professional resources of other business people just like you!

PCBL Mission

The mission of the Porter County Business League is to generate business for fellow League members. Members shall do so by educating themselves about the products and service s offered by fellow members’ businesses, recommending member businesses to associates, colleagues, friends and family in need of these products and services, and providing fellow members with referral contact information for follow up. It is the sincere hope of the League that trust, friendship and camaraderie are evident in our organization, but that members’ first responsibility is to assist in the generation of new business for all members.
