About BNI Business Boosters

From the BNI Website:
The philosophy of this organization 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 professional “word-of-mouth” program that enables them to develop long-term, meaningful relationships with quality business professionals.
If you are looking to grow your business through referral networking, BNI may be right for you. Each chapter allows only one person per profession, and many openings are coveted positions. If your profession is not yet represented in our chapter, you are more than welcome to visit with us without cost or obligation.

What sets BNI Business Boosters apart?
If you’ve never attended a BNI Chapter Meeting before, you should know that chapters have their own quality. Each has a character and style, and not every chapter is the best fit for every business owner.
BNI Business Boosters has always been a strong chapter. We have consistently outperformed neighboring chapters in referrals passed, and actual closed business. At the same time, we have a unique sense of humor and camaraderie not often seen at BNI meetings. Visit once and we’ll show you what we mean!
Here’s just a few Frequently Asked Questions and their answers (gleaned from the BNI Website) that will help you better understand what BNI is all about:
Can anyone join a chapter?
BNI allows only one person per professional specialty per chapter. As an example, if you were a residential real estate person and a chapter already had one, that chapter could refer you to another one, or allow you to open a new chapter. But if you were a commercial real estate person and the residential realtor in that chapter didn’t handle commercial real estate, you could be eligible to join that chapter.
(Our chapter happens to have both! Sorry!)
What if a member gets a referral and does poor work?
We have an ethics committee and it is imperative that anyone who gives a lead and finds out it was not satisfactorily handled must report that to the membership committee, who will investigate.
What occupations benefit the most from networking?
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.
My profession does not let me directly solicit business. Is BNI still right for me?
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.
The people in the group are terrific, the businesses are great—they all stand behind what they do—and the quality of our members is excellent.Fred I.
All our members are very professional—they bring a lot of expertise. I love BNI Business Boosters!Darlene R.
The thing I like about our chapter is the energy, the camaraderie, and the fact that we do get a lot of business passed.Trevor T.
