Double Bay Networking Group

DBNG’s philosophy is to strengthen the local businesses of Double Bay through regular structured networking meetings.

Businesses that operate in or supply and service the Double Bay area form the group membership but there is no restriction on the areas of membership. Each DBNG member has his or her own exclusive business category which locks out all competitors. This has created a very effective business referral system.

DBNG is a not for profit organisation, with businesses contributing a nominal amount to cater for meetings and to support the greater Double Bay Community.

We represent a community of approximately 8000 businesses in our district from Double Bay and Edgecliff through to Rose Bay, Paddington, Woollahra and Vaucluse. With the support of Woollahra Council, we actively assist and promote the interests of all businesses in Double Bay and the east. We have a proud four year history and we invite you to join us as we continue to activate business, grow and flourish.

Become a Member of DBNG

To become a DBNG member there are a few restrictions. An existing business (non member) cannot participate in the following:

  • Apply for membership in the same category as an existing DBNG member
  • Cannot actively participate or engage with DBNG members at the structured meetings.
  • If the requested business category is taken, a business cannot formally apply to the DBNG Executive Committee for membership.
  • A new membership application will require formal committee approval and a signed agreement to accept and follow the DBNG membership guidelines.
  • The purpose of these guidelines is not to exclude but rather to ensure potential members are aware of the guidelines and responsibilities designed for DBNG and its members.

Memberships must be re-applied for on a 12 monthly basis. This again is to ensure continued commitment to DBNG and its members.
