What makes BNI work?

Commitment. The most successful chapters of BNI are comprised of members who are sincerely committed to helping one another grow through networking. They are a team. As a member of BNI, it’s critical to follow the policies and guidelines of the organization* such as:

  • All members should represent their primary occupation – if you’re dedicated to your business full-time, it shows!
  • Attendance is critical – this is how your fellow members learn what type of business you need. If you cannot attend a meeting, you can send a substitute to deliver your business message.
  • Bring solid, qualified referrals and visitors to our Parkville BNI chapter.
  • Participation in the chapter is the key to our success! We encourage our members to participate every day – listen for possible referrals, schedule meetings with fellow members to learn details about their businesses, and find ways to help grow our chapter and our businesses!

(*) Note: In the event that BNI’s general rules could potentially violate a professional’s ethical code, the professional’s ethics code shall govern.
