Why Join BNI?

The benefit of membership is to substantially increase your exposure to many other people and businesses.
 
BNI chapters only accept one person per professional specialty. So if you are a residential real estate person and we already have one, we can refer you to another chapter, or allow you to be part of opening another chapter. Of course, if you are a commercial real estate person, you could be eligible to join this chapter.
 
Our application asks for references and we have a membership committee that checks them. Its word of mouth, so before you even come to a meeting you would have spoken to someone or been invited by someone in the group. This sponsor is assigned to you and you are interviewed by them.
It is not the occupation it is the individual who benefits the most from networking. The occupation can be anything. If you're focused and you have a dream and you're willing to make a sacrifice, you are the person we want in the group.
 
BNI understands the importance of the ethical concerns governing certain professions and acknowledges that rules can differ. As such, BNI therefore requires its members to uphold the rules of its profession so as not to violate the professional's ethical obligations. In the event that BNI 's general rules could potentially violate a professional's ethical code, BNI rules are superseded by the dictates of the professional's ethics' code. Significantly, a primary objective of BNI is to educate its membership in ways to market and grow business. It is BNI's intent to ensure that this is permitted.
 
BNI understands that many professions are broad and that people often specialize within their profession. BNI does not expect, nor does it encourage any professional to participate in an area in which the professional does not have expertise. On the contrary, BNI prohibits professionals from acting outside of the scope of their abilities.
 
BNI's primary objective is to assist its members in ways to improve their business and to educate them concerning how they can effectively network. Business people get business when their expertise is known and others reach a comfort level with them. BNI provides a forum that allows members to meet other business peers who need to know effective and efficient business people.

I recommend it to anyone who is growing their customer base and looking for more business.

I had just opened my retail shop when I joined BNI, The Professionals Chapter. It was the best thing I could do to get word of mouth advertising for my business out there. Three years on, and BNI has and still is the best marketing tool for my business, having networked with some of the most prominent and professional business people this side of the Umgeni River.
