Ashland Business Connections is a local chapter of Business Networking International (BNI), a business referral organization that believes you can best build your business by developing lasting relationships. BNI is the largest and most successful networking organization, with over 122,000 members in 5,450 chapters meeting in 42 countries. BNI Oregon & SW Washington currently has nearly 1,000 members in 35 chapters. Last year, members of BNI passed 5,600,000 referrals that generated over $2.3 billion worth of business for each other! Here in Oregon & SW Washington during 2009, members passed over $7 million in business!
Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of sales people representing your business, and in return you're representing their businesses. BNI is based on Givers Gain. What goes around comes around. If I give business to the members of my chapter, members of my chapter will, in return, do business with me.
We meet at 905 Skylark Place on Tuesdays at 8:00 am.
