Generating Profitable Business Leads From The Most Trusted Referral Sources


About EAOC

The Executives' Association of Orange County is an exclusive group of prestigious business owners and decision-makers, ACTIVELY pursuing leads and referrals to grow and support each other's businesses.  The core of the EAOC is the 1-hour weekly breakfast meeting, held every Wednesday at 7:00 am at The Green Parrot Villa in Santa Ana.

We maintain the high quality of the organization by carefully considering the businesses that join the ranks of the EAOC.  We allow just one member from each industry to join, which makes it easy for your fellow members to actively seek referrals and leads for your business. 

The business integrity of our members is a credit to the EAOC community, and members represent the kinds of companies with whom YOU would like to do business, making referrals simple.

What We Do and How We Do It

At the weekly breakfast meeting, more existing business and potential business is transacted than you would believe possible!

Each weekly breakfast meeting includes: self-introductions, exchange of leads, one in-depth member presentation on his or her business, one or more “mini-talks”, and an informal contact session.  Not to mention, some of the finest Mexican cuisine that you will find anywhere.

Following the meeting, the featured member receives a front page article with direct links in the EAOC Weekly newsletter, which gets emailed to EVERY member in the EAOC, 2-3 days of social media coverage on all of EAOC's channels (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn), and a blog post with direct links on our news page.


In addition to actively supporting each other's businesses through leads and networking, members tend to choose each other for DIRECT business, rather than risk seeking unfamiliar referrals outside of the group.  This saves an abundance of time and money, and is one of the primary reasons we have members locking down business categories for DECADES. 

The EAOC Member Directory becomes more than a listing of your fellow members;  it becomes your one-stop resource for every vendor that you or your loved ones could EVER need.

What People are Saying

When I was invited to be a part of the EAOC, I had no idea that a “by invitation only” networking group existed. Well, we’ve been around since the early 70’s. And, what a great group of business associates we have. 

Not only are these members excellent business owners that I can refer my clients to, they are an invaluable source of knowledge for me and my clients. 

Often, merely providing information is just what was needed. These professionals are like my business partners, they are champions of my business as well as their own. 

Joining this group of dedicated business professionals has been the key to my success and I’m happy to be a part of this fantastic group. 

Gizi Clemmer, FirstTeam Real Estate

I joined EAOC because of a friend.  In my first year I have gained over 10k in continual annual business.

Quinton Fasola, ASURE Software

In the past 42 years I have received many good leads that have become good clients.  Many of them are still clients of the firm I am with today (This represented 50% of the clients that I merged into the new firm).  I have used many past and current members for a reliable source of good and reputable suppliers for both business and personal needs, including several members that helped me make profitable investments over the years.

Hal Grimshaw, Belden Hiramoto Liu & Co., LLP

I joined EAOC because Phil Kintz asked me. At the time the cost and early meeting time was a concern. The first six months of membership I received an extra $6000 in volume.

Gary Gregg, Creating With Glass

I have been a member for many years in several different classifications. EAOC has always provided me with a steady flow of leads. However the biggest benefit I’ve received has been “outside” of the core purpose of leads. A past member John Valentine, mentioned to me that he had heard about some industrial land for sale in Costa Mesa. I ended up buying it, building a warehouse and running my business at the time (South Coast Stationers) there for about thirty years. It was an excellent investment.

Pete Sloan,

A lead from Past member Bob Hardman eight years ago resulted in $15,000 of business. A lead from Mel Smith eight years ago resulted in $25,000 of business. Benefits of membership include direct business from other members resulting in $10,000 in business and direct business with other members that resulted in excellent service and financial savings.

Carlos Salazar, Salazar Associates

I have built my entire business on leads from the EAOC. I started my association management firm in 1981 with one client EAOC. In the last thirty four years the business has grown to fourteen associations. We employ eleven full time and one part time employee. I can trace ten of my long term clients to referrals from EAOC that brings in over $500,000 annually. The network of present and passed members has had a tremendous impact on my life.

Gayle Stewart, Gayle Stewart Enterprises

EAOC has been a reliable source of steady business for me for about thirty years. Thank You EAOC!
