About BNI

The BNI Philosophy – Givers Gain

Every year, members of BUSINESS NETWORK INT’L. (BNI) pass thousands of referrals which generate millions of dollars worth of business for each other! BNI is a business and professional networking organization that allows only one person per profession to join a chapter.

Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of sales people working for you because all the other members carry several copies of your business cards around with them. When they meet someone new who could use your products or service, they hand your card out and recommend your services*. It’s as simple as that! It’s simple because it’s based on the proven concept of what goes around, comes around. If I help you, you’ll help me and we will both benefit as a result.

BNI provides a structured and supportive system of giving and receiving business. It does so by providing an environment in which you develop personal relationships with dozens of other qualified business professionals. By establishing this “formal” relationship
