BNI - Chambersburg

Local Business - Global Network®

BNI is the largest business networking organization in the world, and offers members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly, business referrals.

Started in January 1985 by Dr. Ivan R. Misner, Founder & Chairman of BNI, BNI provides a positive, supportive, and structured environment for the development of businesses through exchange of quality referrals. BNI members build personal relationships with dozens of other qualified business professionals.

Last year, members of BNI passed millions of referrals that generated billions of dollars of business for each other. Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of salespeople representing your business, and in return you are representing their businesses. What goes around comes around. If I help you, you'll help me and we will both benefit as a result.

Networking requires commitment. The most successful chapters of BNI are comprised of participants who are sincerely committed to helping one another through networking. They are a team. As a participant in BNI, you are responsible for complying with the policies and guidelines of the organization.
