Seeking BNI Referral Network Partners

Interested in joining our startup group?
Answer a few short questions,
and a group member will be in touch to share more about chapter membership.


WHAT WE’RE DOING:
We’re forming a BNI chapter (Business Networking International) from the ground up and are on the hunt for other like-minded and driven professionals to join our chapter.

WHY SHOULD YOU CONSIDER JOINING:
Your business is built on referrals and you want to tap into a new market of clients.

WHAT IS BNI & HOW DOES IT WORK:

  • Only one person from each professional specialty may be accepted into a single chapter of BNI.
  • We meet weekly to actively help each other with new business leads and referrals. Meetings last 90 minutes. Same day, same time, same place. (Meet before 8am, Details TBD).
  • Each week you’re expected to provide referral(s) to group members and in turn you also receive referrals.
  • Attendance is critical as its the only way to accept and receive a lead. Everybody in the group needs to arrive on time and stay for the entire meeting. If you cannot attend a meeting, you must send a substitute.
  • We’re still confirming weekly venue details (either Ravenswood, Lakeview, Loop or West Loop).
  • The BNI application fee is $200 (one-time), and the annual chapter dues are $500. Since our group is a startup chapter, the dues start date does not activate until our group is formally chartered (once we reach 20 committed members).
  • We are aiming for a chapter commencement date of MARCH 2018, although this is variable based on commitments
