How can I convince a networking group to accept my membership application?

I have 10 years of experience in the shipping and logistics industry and I opened a new company five months ago. I want to join a networking group but they only accept companies with at least 3 years of business activity. How do I convince them to accept my membership application?

Hi Mirene,

Many organizations have an established set of criteria a business owner has to meet to allow participation. In this case you can highlight your expertise and tenure in the field. Simultaneously it may be a good idea to research similar organizations that serve the same purpose. There are so many networking groups both on and offline. Your local Chamber of Commerce is a viable option and other major social media platforms could serve to be very beneficial in your finding the perfect networking group for you.
