How can I get invited as a visitor to a BNI meeting?
To ensure you have a productive visit it is best to be 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. Please contact the BNI Central Maryland office at (202) 570-2428, send email or complete the form on the homepage. You can also be invited by a BNI member or contact a local chapter's president directly.
How can I find out more about Joining BNI?
The best way to find out about joining 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 the group would be a good fit for your business and your business category is open, you may apply for the position at the meeting.
Where can I get a BNI Membership Application?
Please visit the chapter's home page and click the APPLY NOW link and a link to the electronic online application will be sent to your email address. A full list of chapters in the area can be found HERE.
You should note that some professions (particularly financial advisors, P and C Insurance, residential realtors and mortgage brokers) may find it difficult to locate a chapter or forming group with an opening for their business category. To find out how we can assist you to start your own chapter, contact the BNI Central Maryland office at (202) 570-2428, send email. We will be delighted to speak with you about the development of a new chapter.
