Networking for Success

The Concord Minuteman Chapter is laying out the 2018 goals and one is to increase membership to 40-42 committed members. This is not a new idea for growth, but what is new is the initiative created by Gail Alden and supported by leadership. Gail suggested that we break the chapter in to mini teams of 4 and then to buddy up to go to outside networking events together.

As a 13 year member of the chapter and a residential Realtor I think this is a brilliant idea. If everyone in the chapter visits an outside networking event once per quarter it will provide exponential growth to the members and the chapter. Our goal is to match strong networkers with those who need support to ensure success.

I was at a networking event last night in Burlington and there were about 30 people there. It was a group of bankers, lawyers, and Realtors. I was thinking to myself that what if one of my team members was Gail Alden a land scape designer. Could her business benefit from being in room with 30 real estate people, the answer is heck yes! Also, while at these events we can discuss BNI and have an opportunity to invite visitors to our chapter.

Thinking outside the box and doing new things is what I love about networking and the minuteman chapter.

Getting the Most out of your BNI Membership

“Getting the Most out of your BNI Membership” this is phrase that you hear on a daily basis at BNI. What does this mean to you as a member? For me it means looking at the weekly meeting as the “Tip of the Iceberg” which means that another 90% of that berg is under theContinue Reading

Importance of Renewal Feedback Request

This is a note from the Membership committee to our members. Renewal in BNI is not automatic and it is really important for members to submit feedback once it is requested from our team. I want members to think of the Membership Committee as the Human Resources Department for our BNI chapter. Our job isContinue Reading

Turning Pink Slips into Paychecks

Before the world of online entry, BNI had referral slips and there were three copies. The white one was given to the member receiving the referral, the pink slip went in the basket, and the member giving the referral kept the yellow slip.
