About BNI®


The philosophy of BNI® is built upon the idea of “Givers Gain®”.
By giving business to others, you will get business in return. This is predicated on the age-old idea of “What goes around, comes around.”

The mission of BNI® is to help members increase their business through a structured, positive, and word-of-mouth. This enables us to develop long-term, meaningful relationships with quality business professionals.

Like having dozens of sales people working for you.
We carry several copies of your business cards around with us. When we meet someone who could use your products or services, we take out your card and recommend you. It’s as simple as that!

It’s simple because it’s based on a proven concept by BNI Founder, Dr. Ivan Misner, called “Givers Gain®.”

If I know, like and trust you, I’ll be inclined to refer business to you. If you know, like and trust me, you may refer business to me. We’ll both benefit as a result.

Our goal is to help you grow your business. BN®I is a business-building system predicated on business leaders meeting each week in chapters that help members generate qualified client referrals, promote on-going professional development; and foster lifelong relationships.

We only take one person per professional specialty.

The BNI application asks for references. Our membership committee checks them. It’s word of mouth, so before they even come to a meeting they have to have spoken to someone or been invited by someone in the group. Everyone has to have a sponsor, or one is assigned to them, and they interview them.

It is not the occupation, it is the individual. The occupation can be anything. If you’re focused and you have a dream and you’re willing to make a sacrifice, you are the person we want in the group.

BNI® understands that many professions are broad and that people often specialize within their profession. BNI does not expect, nor does it encourage, any professional to participate in an area in which the professional does not have expertise. On the contrary, BNI prohibits professionals from acting outside of the scope of their abilities.

BNI®’s primary objective is to assist its members in ways to improve their business and to educate them concerning how they can effectively network. Business people get business when their expertise is known and others reach a comfort level with them. BNI® provides a forum that allows members to meet other business peers who need to know effective and efficient business people.
