BNI is the most successful organization of its type in the world. We have over 9,500 chapters and over 280,000 members worldwide. But what is it that makes BNI so special?
Here's what makes BNI different from other networking opportunities:
We allow only one member in each chapter per profession. This makes you the trusted advisor for your profession in your chapter.
BNI has structured meetings, so everyone has a chance to speak (perfect for those who aren't the loudest voice in the room).
Chapters meet once per week (currently on Zoom) for 1 ½ hours on average. Members are also encouraged to have individual meetings with one another at other times during the week. One “121” meeting is recommended per week. As most members would tell you, “The 121s are where the magic happens.”
We offer tons of support and training. Each chapter has members designated as mentors, visitor hosts, and education coordinators to be sure everyone gets the most out of their BNI membership
Your BNI membership goes beyond just your chapter. There are over 600 members throughout New Hampshire, all of whom are accessible to one another and incentivized to help each other grow. BNI members are part of a big happy family.
The BNI philosophy is “Givers Gain.” BNI members are encouraged to pass referrals with each other.
There are over 40 BNI chapters across New Hampshire and they all meet on different days of the week. Therefore, finding a convenient meeting for your schedule is easy! To visit a chapter, visit BNINH.com, click the button that says, “Search Meetings by Day of Week or City,” and browse away!
Get to know like-minded professionals across a number of industries & make valuable connections that will boost business!
Take it from a few of our current members:
“Best organization I’ve ever been a part of. I owe so, so much of my business’ success to BNI. Have met so many wonderful people and it just keeps going. What I love most is how referrals and relationships just... happen, in BNI. Even when you’re not expecting it or trying, some new 2nd or 3rd tier connection comes out of the woodwork and becomes life changing. It’s up there with the best professional decisions I have ever made.”
By Brad Solomon
“I’m so glad I had the opportunity to join BNI. At first it seemed like a pretty steep commitment but I feel foolish for thinking that way. I’ve developed the most amazing network of friends, referrals, and business partners and it’s all thanks to BNI. Joining BNI is a smart business decision and I recommend checking out a local chapter.”
By Caitlin Konchek
“BNI has shown me to be confident in myself. I used to be afraid of public speaking but now I feel I could speak in front of 100 people confidently. I've also made lifetime connections who are just as passionate about what they do as I am with what I do. I don't go to any other networking events because I don't get what I want out of them. I have been spoiled by how amazing BNI is!”
By George Whitcher
“What has BNI done for my business? 60% of our business last years was due to referrals from our BNI network. BNI has allowed us to remain focused on growing our business every week, we never take a back seat. Because of BNI, when I am on vacation or away, there is still a group of individuals out there actively looking for new business opportunities for me! Where else can you get that? Oh, and finally, I have met so many AMAZING people that I am constantly looking for ways to help them in their goals and business. BNI is an essential part of our business!”
