Who are we? We are your sales forces, and you are ours!
As a BNI chapter, we are a part of the largest, most active business networking group in the world. There are thousands of chapters in every continent of the world, and we have been a chapter in the La Cañada area for over 4 years now.
As a group we have members from the San Gabriel Valley, and a little San Fernando Valley as well. This includes La Canada, La Crescenta, Montrose, Tujunga, Glendale, Pasadena and Altadena.
The philosophy of BNI is "Giver's Gain" and we act as each others sales team. If I give referrals to the members in my chapter, they will give referrals to me. It's well known that Word of Mouth advertising is the most cost-effective form of advertising, and BNI provides a well-structured process and procedure for accomplishing this.
We allow only ONE person for each category to be a member of BNI. For instance, unlike chambers where anyone can join, in BNI there would be only one plumber, and one insurance agent per group. To find out what categories are taken and who our members are, click on the Pages tab above.
Our current Leadership team includes:
President: - Dr. Michael Shahbazian, D.C. Vice President: - Lynne Graves Secretary Treasurer: - Rene Sarkhosh, CPA
IMPORTANT NOTE: We meet every Tuesday morning for breakfast (8:00-9:30am) at Dish Restaurant, 734 Foothill, La Cañada, and we have a $15 investment to attend the meeting, have breakfast and grow your business. We only allow one person per profession in BNI meetings, so to see if your category is already taken please check our Pages link above to view "Our Current Members" above.
