Monthly Newsletter

Dear Members,

Happy April everyone! These are certainly challenging times for us all but the good news is that we survived March 2020. Now it's time for us to thrive - and together it is easier. 

In this historic time, our members have done extraordinary things: First you have created $610,916 in Thank You For Closed Business. During the past month more members moved to the Yellow and the Green in the Power of One (click here for the full Power of One report). In March 2020 - 5 Chapters grew: BNI Alliance, BNI Bethesda Business, BNI Capital Business Alliance, BNI Chevy Chase Game Changers and BNI High Energy Lunch Bunch. This is extraordinary! 

In March 2020, four members got the perfect score of 100 in the Power of One:

Brian Loebig - BNI Capital Business Alliance
Diamond Chaflawee - BNI Midcounty Connectors
Meghan Johnson - BNI Networking Partners
Mary Ann Aellen - BNI Wealth Builders

Congratulations for your accomplishment!
