What we're about

BNI is the largest business networking organization in the world. At the Sherman Oaks chapter, We Mean Business! We meet weekly on Thursdays, 7 AM, at Corky's Restaurant in Sherman Oaks. Our members work out of the San Fernando Valley and Greater Los Angeles.

We are actively seeking referral partners in the following professions:
Graphic Designer, Immigration Attorney, Banker, Plumber, General Contractor, and many more. We know we can help find you business! Visitors are always welcome!

We are not a "Leads group", the referrals we pass are qualified, and are expecting to hear from you.

We offer members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly, exchange business referrals. BNI is based on the philosophy of “Givers Gain” - those who give the most referrals typically receive the most referrals. Word of Mouth is the most cost-effective form of advertising possible, and BNI provides a structured environment that allows the development and exchange of quality business referrals to flourish.
