Why Join?

Successful businesses depend on personal referrals. Word-of-mouth advertising is the best and most cost-effective advertising there is. BNI provides a structured and supportive system of giving and receiving business. It does so by providing an environment in which you will develop personal relationships with dozens of other qualified business professionals. By establishing this "formal" relationship with other people, you will have the opportunity to substantially increase your business.

  • Increased exposure to many other people and businesses.
  • Substantially increased business through networked referrals and recognition by one's peers.
  • Tools to network more effectively, including an orientation DVD giving the "Formula for Success" in BNI, a, badge, a vinyl card holder to carry members' business cards, referral slips, marketing materials for your chapter and much, much more.
  • Participation in up to 52 networking meetings per year.
  • Quarterly newsletters with educational material on networking, public speaking, and business.
  • Participation in business tradeshows (where you'll have an opportunity to market your chapter and your business).
  • Free periodic workshops on networking.
  • And much, much more!!!

The World's Largest Referral Organization BNI is the largest business networking organization in the world. We offer members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly, business referrals. As a member of Chapter 41 you will become part of a real community of entrepreneurs and enjoy its benefits. As a vital member of a BNI Chapter you will bond with many other professionals seeking the same kind of "Word of Mouth" referrals as you. Since 1985 BNI has used a simple but elegant philosophy that exemplifies membership, "Givers Gain" (what goes around comes around). This elemental approach to prospecting for clients through relationship-building has seen BNI grow to well over 125,000 members in more than 40 countries around the world. In Manhattan, we currently have over 1200 members in more than 50 Chapters.


One-to-Ones

"One-to-Ones" are meetings with other chapter members outside of the regular morning meetings. One-to-Ones are an opportunity to get to know other members and the services they offer, and are particularly helpful for new members. For all members they're a great way to increase credibility, and in turn, increase the number of qualified referrals.
