Membership benefits include:
- Increased exposure to many other people and businesses. As a member, you gain visibility within the BNI community, giving your business greater top-of-mind awareness and lead potential.
- Substantially increased business through referrals. The average seat in our chapter generated more than $22,000 in new business directly through BNI referrals during the 2012 calendar year. How much you gain depends on the type of business and your own efforts as a chapter member, but most members find that BNI makes a substantial difference to their bottom line.
- Tools to network more effectively, including an orientation audio tape giving the BNI “Formula for Success,” a badge, a vinyl card holder to carry members’ business cards, referral slips, marketing materials for your chapter and more. Breakfast of Champions also subscribes to a special, optional BNI program called “Fast Track” that further accelerates your networking potential.
- Participation in up to 50 networking meetings per year. We meet weekly to get to know one another and increase each member’s Visibility, Credibility and Profitability.
- Free listing on the BNI website trade directory. Members know that because each BNI member was carefully selected through a membership application process, they meet BNI’s high standards. So when members across the region look for someone in your profession, they first turn to the BNI listings.
- Regular exposure to educational material on networking, public speaking and business. You get to give a short infomercial each week, honing your skills in presenting your credentials. In addition, you gain valuable knowledge from weekly “Educational Moments,” powerful presentations by BNI Directors and Ambassadors, and insights from other members.
- Opportunities to participate in cross chapter networking events and social functions. We get together for a variety of events throughout the year. You also have access to information about other networking opportunities outside BNI to increase your business exposure.
