Business Network International is a business and professional networking organization whose primary purpose is to exchange qualified business referrals. BNI operates on the "givers gain" philosophy; those who give business freely to others will benefit, and in return, will get business as well.
BNI is the largest networking organization of its kind. Currently, BNI has over 4,200 chapters in operation in the United States and twenty-five other countries. Members of Business Network International have passed over 3,000,000 referrals which generated over $7 billion dollars of new business for its members. This method of word of mouth recommendation has proven to be more powerful than most sales, marketing and advertising activities combined.
BNI established its first chapter in Houston in January 1993 and currently has over 25 dynamic and active chapters in the area. Individual chapter meeting locations and membership lists are linked to this page.
What makes BNI unique is that we only allow one person per profession to join a chapter. Thus, once you have joined, NONE of your competitors can participate.
Visitors are invited to attend a business meeting of any of the local chapters. There are no visitor fees and breakfast costs vary with the meeting locations. Visitors are asked to bring plenty of business cards to distribute. They can look forward to being introduced to numerous other business professionals in the group.
Tony Robbins has said that one referral is equal to fifteen cold calls. Active participation in BNI can substantially increase YOUR business through referrals. Join us, this organization is really exciting!
