Patron Membership

Patron Membership

Overview

Patron Membership is designed for larger multinational companies or companies that are interested in having access to the BABC OC at a senior level.

To ensure Patron Members continue to gain maximum business value from their membership, a member of the BABC OC Board Executive Committee will meet with the company periodically to review progress and discuss strategies and tactics.

Patron Membership, limited to just 6 companies, also provides you with the full range of high-level networking, promotional and business development opportunities in addition to the regular benefits of the Membership in the British American Business Council.

Assuming Patron Members make the best use of their membership during the year, the value of tangible benefits is $12,200.  This does not include the value of any referrals or business generated which is generally hard to trace, as members rarely share when BABC OC introductions have come to some meaningful fruition.

A strong network is essential for business success and networking is the number one reason people want to attend events.  We are social creatures and events are a great way to get some face time with established connections and to forge new relationships.

Events, quite simply, build bonds and brands.  The BABC OC Events Program exists for two primary purposes:

  • To provide a platform, through sponsorship, for our members to share awareness of their offerings and ways in which they might be able to help our members and guests.
  • To give the opportunity for our community to come together, in high quality environments, to meet new people, expand their networks and ultimately to develop new business opportunities.

The BABC OC produces between 15-20 events each year.  Roughly half are educational and cover a wide range of topics that are member driven and that aim to attract relevant people.

We also host a number of purely social events, where business relationships also grow.

Finally, the BABC OC Annual Traditional British Christmas Luncheon which is the BABC OC’s primary fundraiser and an amazing finale to the year.  Over 350 guests from Orange County’s business community attend this event each year.
