BNI is a business and professional organization whose primary purpose is to exchange qualified business referrals. In fact, last year, our members exchanged over 5.5 million business referrals, totaling well over $2.2 billion in new business. If you would like to increase the volume of your business or just want to do “better” business through personal referrals, then BNI is for you. Remember – people who GIVE business referrals, GET business referrals. At BNI we invite only one person from each profession to join a chapter, and we currently are seeking to give referrals to someone in your industry. I would like to invite you as my guest to learn first-hand about our organization, particularly if you are interested in generating a steady source of referral business for yourself.
Please RSVP on each individual meetup you will be attending. Remember to bring plenty of business cards to pass around, as you will meet 25 to 35 local business professionals. Please feel free to bring a business associate with you who may also be interested in finding out how to generate more business through “word-of-mouth” marketing.
***The cost to attend the meeting is $21.00 payable by cash or $22.00 via credit card. The meeting fee includes buffet lunch, beverage, tax, tip, and amazing networking opportunities.***
ICC Dress Code: Please refrain from wearing denim. Thank you.
BNI Chapter meetings follow a prepared agenda. Plan to arrive by 11:15am to maximize your chance to speak with members and other guests. The meeting has two parts, first there is open networking and about 11:45am, we start the more formal part of the meeting.
Visitors have three chances to speak during the meeting. First, we ask for an introduction of just your name, business, and who invited you. Second will be your 45 second elevator speech where you tell us who you are, what you do, and what types of referrals you are looking for. At the end of the meeting, you will have the opportunity to tell us your impressions of the meeting and any chapter members you would like to talk with further.
