What we're about

As a BNI chapter, the Crescenta Valley Chapter is part of the largest, most active business networking group in the world. We meet every Wednesday morning for breakfast (7:15-8:45a) at Dish Restaurant, 734 Foothill, La Canada.

La Canada straddles the Crescenta Valley to the west and the San Gabriel Valley to the east. Thus, we draw members from La Canada, La Crescenta, Montrose, Tujunga, Glendale, etc. and from Pasadena and Altadena as well. We are actively looking for referral partners in the following areas: Florist, Photographer, Event Planner and many others. We know we can help you find business, and, thereby, help your business grow. Visitors are always welcome. We are not a "Leads" group. We are a referrals group. The referrals we give are Qualified. They are waiting to hear from you. We offer our members the opportunity to exchange business ideas that work, and, most important, "real," "honest," and "true" opportunities to do business.

We function as each other's sales force and board of directors. BNI is based on the philosophy of Giver's Gain: 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.

Network with a Great Group of Business People -- Here in La Canada

Every week one of our members is given the opportunity to speak about his/her business. These talks are always interesting and informative. One of the great opportunities of membership is to become more comfortable speaking in front of a group of people. You are starting by speaking to people you know -- other business people who want you to always make a great impression when you speak. Others who want you to be a winner every time. We invite you to come by and join us for breakfast on a Wednesday morning from 7:15am to 8:45am and introduce yourself and your business. You'll find that we are friendly and welcoming. We ask that you pay a venue fee of $15, which covers the cost of your breakfast. This is the same fee that our members have paid in advance. ****** We, the members of the Crescenta Valley chapter of BNI are specifically looking to refer business to the best local business people in the following occupational categories: health insurance, escrow, personal trainer, chiropractor, painter, car mechanic, auto sales & leasing, tax preparation, personal injury attorney, and quite possibly YOU. And we'll keep interviewing possible candidates until we find an exact fit.
