Dear Members,

September is here and the school year has started. The BNI New Leadership is on the horizon, and the Region's Leadership is working hard to support the smooth transition.

It is our time to thank our wonderful leaders who have supported us and led us to  growth and thriving. We are Grateful for your contribution to our members!

We are excited and look forward to seeing y'all at our New Leadership Training on Monday, September 11 at 2-4pm. Whichever role you have in the chapter and even if you do not hold one - you are invited! There's a prize to the chapter that will have the most members stay the longest in the leadership meeting.... So while you connect and grow, you also support your chapter by being at the meeting!

The Power of One is our method to keep accountability. In the month of August the majority of our region has been in the Green/Yellow! That's a great achievement. Way to go! Some members have excelled in their activity and scored 100 in The Power of One.



Thank you to all who sponsored new members in the month of August! Sponsoring a new member is an opportunity to help another business owner to grow their business and develop. Inviting them to BNI can be the biggest gift that you can give.
