Dear Members,

This week BNI celebrates its International Networking Week. This is an opportunity for us to appreciate the global opportunities that BNI provides us to network and grow. To celebrate this week we will have our Regional Speed Networking on 2/8/24 4-5pm - here is the link for registration

We want to make sure that each and everyone of our members is accessible worldwide, and that is why we ask that you make sure that on BNI Connect your "connections" are open to "All" - that way people who are not part of your chapter can see your information and contact.


Kudos for creating $1,341,000.00 in Thank You for Closed Business in January 2024. A special thank you to the biggest givers in the region: 


Congratulations to the people who
scored 100% in the
Power of One Report


For the complete report, please click here.

The Power of One is our method to keep accountability. In the month of January 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 January! 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.




We're thrilled to recognize the achievements of two of our BNI members, Brian Madden and Chrissy Mayhew, this month. Both have been inducted into the BNI Gold Club for sponsoring six members into the region.

Chrissy Mayhew of Heartland Payment Systems specializes in tailoring solutions to meet the unique needs of her clients, whether it's collecting credit cards or managing payroll. Chrissy has been a member of BNI Wealth Builders since 2016 and holds prominent leadership positions, serving as Visitor Host and Mentor Coordinator for the chapter.

Brian Madden is an outstanding professional at Goosehead Insurance, where he takes great care of his clients' property and casualty insurance needs. Diligent, courteous, and highly skilled, Brian has been a member of BNI Alliance since 2007.


Thank you to our generous Sponsors! Without your support, this regional networking event wouldn't have been possible.
