BNI (Business Networking International) is the longest standing and most successful networking organization of its kind. Individual members come to know and trust each other, building long term relationships to grow their careers. Those working in similar fields develop industry-related “power spheres” to leverage their skills and create more business together. The ideas behind the established networking platform have been tweaked for over 30 years and are extremely successful. An important distinction from other networking organizations is that each seat represents an individual profession and there is no overlap.
The BNI concepts are not only proven to develop and grow the members’ individual businesses, but they strengthen and expand the network of the chapter as a whole. The main philosophy is “Giver’s Gain.” The more you give to your fellow member; the more you’ll receive in return. This translates into millions of dollars worth of closed business every year as everyone grows and prospers together.
Chapter Members in the same industry meet together to brainstorm shared marketing efforts and collaborations.
With almost $1MM in referred 2018, we're looking to make 2019 even better
We always clap when someone has new business and sometimes we dance.
From happy hours to golf outings, we don't ignore the social component of networking either.
Yes the meetings start early in the day, but you will walk out with a newfound energy ready to take on whatever your business day has in store.
BNI provides a positive, supportive, and structured environment for the development and exchange of quality business referrals. It does so by helping you build personal relationships with dozens of other qualified business professionals.
Last year, members of BNI passed millions of referrals that generated billions of dollars of business for each other. Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of salespeople representing your business, and in return you are representing their businesses. What goes around comes around. If I help you, you’ll help me and we will both benefit as a result.
Networking requires commitment. The most successful chapters of BNI are comprised of participants who are sincerely committed to helping one another through networking. They are a team. As a participant in BNI, you are responsible for complying with the policies and guidelines of the organization.
