Why should each individual BNI member want to invite visitors? This is a questions that I pondered for many years, and it was not until I saw the value of inviting visitors first hand did I really understand. When you bring a guest to your meeting you are demonstrating to your team that you believe in the chapter. Your status on the referral confidence curve shoots way up. You will be looked at as a leader in the chapter and people want to refer leaders. Further, if the guest you invited joins and turns out to be an allstar that refers people and brings more guest the members will again look to you as the one that had the ability to bring this person on board. Bringing a visitor is a tremendous way to boost your position in the chapter. Another example of Givers Gaining!
