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.
BNI India is India's largest and most successful business networking organisation. We offer our members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts, and most importantly, business referrals !
The first step is to find a chapter and visit and see what we are all about.
Weekly meetings last for 90 minutes. Members need to arrive on time and stay for the entire meeting.
Only one person from each professional specialty is accepted into a chapter of BNI.
All participants must represent their primary occupation.
Attendance is critical. If you cannot attend a meeting, you may send a substitute.
There is an initial application fee, annual membership dues, and chapters have a venue fee for weekly meetings which may vary from chapter to chapter. Please see the chapter Secretary/Treasurer for exact information. When you apply to participate in BNI your application will be reviewed by the chapter's Membership Committee and you will be notified of the status before the next meeting.
