If you're on meetup.com, chances are you know the importance of networking to generate new business. Networking leads to business referrals which are THE fastest way to grow your business. Over 98% of businesses get business from referrals, yet only 3% of those businesses have a plan to consistently get those referrals. Are you ready to join the 3%? For 30 years BNI has used a simple but elegant philosophy that exemplifies membership, "Givers Gain." Whether you're new to BNI or have some experience, chances are you've never seen anything like Revenue Raisers before. We're 28 (and growing) highly motivated, enthusiastic and generous professionals that genuinely care about each other and growing each others business from consistent warm referrals. Our members span from fields as diverse as real estate, legal, marketing, finance, and health and wellness. Best of all, we only allow one person per profession. If your profession isn't yet represented in our chapter, you could quickly become the go-to guy or gal.
