BNI Bucks…What to Record, When, and Where!
At leadership we are constantly talking about the ebbs and flows of the BNI world and one topic that needs continued efforts is the tracking of BNI bucks. So what is the story with BNI bucks and where does the credit need to be given.
Any business that originated from BNI activities needs to be thanked to your home chapter. I personally think that it is also important that if the business comes from another BNI member in another chapter then it is important to give credit to that BNI member in that chapter.
The next area of business that you should be tracking is recurring business. If you are in a profession such as property and casualty insurance where people renew every year then you must constantly put money in the chapter. This is an area where bucks get dropped and many establish chapters are under reported.
Finally, what is the importance of the BNI bucks. First, visitors typically select a chapter that has great BNI bucks. Second, people want to be recognized and you can not overlook the importance of giving a person public praise.
