Why Join?

Successful businesses depend on referral marketing. Referral marketing is the best 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!!!


Also called Dance Cards, "One-to-Ones" are meetings with other members outside of the regular Wednesday morning meetings. One-to-Ones are an opportunity to get to know other members and the services their businesses offer. One-to-Ones are particularly helpful for new members, and for this reason they are counted as referrals during the first three months of membership. For all members they're a great way to help get to know others and their businesses and, in turn, boost leads.
