BNI is a business and professional organization whose primary purpose is to exchange qualified business referrals. In fact, in the last 12 months, our members exchanged over 9.3 million business referrals, totaling $13.4 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.
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 more, the merrier!
DRESS CODE: Because we meet at a country club, we kindly request you do not wear denim (i.e. jeans), short skirts, or low necklines to our meeting. Thank you for respecting the rules of our venue.
VISITORS!!! Please note, you will have three opportunities to speak.
1. First, we ask for an introduction of just your name, business/industry, and who invited you.
2. 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.
3. 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.
***The cost to attend the meeting is $21.00 payable by cash/check or $22.00 via credit card. The meeting fee covers our use of the room and comes with a buffet lunch.
