Our mission is to help members increase their business through a structured, positive, and professional referral marketing program that enables them to develop long-term, meaningful relationships with quality business professionals.
The philosophy of this organization is built upon the idea of "GiversGain®": If I give you business you'll give me business and we'll both benefit as a result.
BNI chapters provide a structured and supportive system of giving and receiving business by providing an environment in which you develop personal relationships with dozens of other business professionals. BNI allows only one person per professional classification or specialty to join a chapter. Within a chapter you have the opportunity to establish relationships with the other people in your chapter. Then, when he or she meets someone who could use your products or services, they take out your card and recommend you. It's as simple as that.
With over 200,000 members in more than 7,500 chapters worldwide, BNI® is the world’s leading referral organization. In 2015 alone, BNI members generated millions of referrals resulting in over $9.3 billion in closed business worldwide.
