Are you looking to build your business with quality business referrals? With over 170,000 members worldwide, BNI is the largest business networking organization in the world. Last year alone, BNI generated 6.6 million referrals resulting in $8.6 billion dollars' worth of business for its members. We offer members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly, business referrals. Every member of the BNI San Francisco Bay area acts as a part of the marketing team for the other members of their chapter, with the aim of securing qualified business referrals for each other.
How can I find out more about BNI? The best way to find out about BNI is to visit a chapter. By visiting a local chapter you will be able to experience the culture and structure of a BNI meeting. You will also get to know the business people involved in the chapter. If you felt that the group would be a good for your business and your specialty is open, you would be given an opportunity to apply for that spot.
How can I get invited to be a guest at a local BNI chapter?
To insure that you have a welcomed visit it would be best to have you as an expected guest. This can be done a number of ways. One way is to contact our regional office and have us notify the chapter that you will be visiting. Our regional office contact information is (707) 773-1370 or by email
. You can also be invited by a BNI member or contact the chapter president directly.

You should note that some professions (particularly residential mortgage brokers, realtors, and financial advisors) may find it extremely difficult to find a chapter or forming group with an opening for their business category. If you are interested in being part of a new forming BNI chapter or you wanted to start your own chapter, please contact the BNI San Francisco Bay office at (707) 773-1370, send email
. We will send information about the development of new chapters.
