Before You Visit
Visiting a local Chapter meeting is the first step in finding your new referral network. You’ll find BNI Members to be welcoming and excited to meet you to learn more about you and your business. 288K members from over 300 different professions use BNI’s proven referral network to grow their business. Make valuable connections and tap into a strong local referral network with a global outreach.
Visitors may attend chapter meetings ONLY TWICE before they will be asked to make a decision about joining. Visitors may NOT promote their business in a chapter where their business category is represented. Visiting a meeting is free and a great way to see a BNI Chapter meeting in action.
It is not necessary to have an invitation to visit a chapter, however it is best to contact the president of the chapter prior to your visit.
When in person meetings are not possible, BNI Online™ is a fantastic online meeting platform. It’s a simple and effective way to build and stay connected to your network from the comfort of your home or office. All it takes is a couple of mouse clicks.
Your first step is to find a local Chapter and register for a meeting. We have over 10,800 Chapters all over the world. The registration process is easy. You will receive emails from the local Chapter leadership with information about the meeting details and how to prepare your visit.
Visitors like you attend Chapter meetings all the time. Members are excited to meet you and make every effort to make the experience fun and productive for you. There is a proven agenda used worldwide to make the most of your time.
