Before You Visit
To help you get the most out of your first BNI meeting, here are some things to know before you go.
Visit a chapter prepared to talk about your business. Members are interested in getting to know how connections with visitors can be mutually beneficial. Also, don’t forget to bring your business cards
Meetings are high energy and run according to a structured agenda. Arrive on time always so you don’t miss out on any opportunities for networking.
You’re the Expert
Only one person from each profession specialty is allowed to join a chapter of BNI, eliminating the possibility of competition among our members. When you join a chapter, you are the sole representative of your field and can develop relationships with others in the chapter as their go-to person for your services.
Respect Your Craft
The businesses our members represent are their full-time occupations, ensuring they are able to position themselves as resources and experts in their field.
