All we ask of our visitors is to tell us about their business. Each week every member has 60 seconds in which they talk about their business, the work they are completing and the types of referrals that they would like.

In rotation, each member also has the opportunity to promote their business in greater detail through a "10 minute" presentation. This allows other members to have a more developed understanding of your business. With this understanding it becomes easier to generate referrals for you, as your fellow members really appreciate your business in greater detail.

You are welcome to come along as a visitor for the first 2 weeks and we would then ask that you make the decision to become a member. Our membership is annual so you have 52 opportunities to increase your marketing channels and generate a larger amount of referrals for both you and also your fellow members.

The principal of BNI is based on "Giver's Gain", the more I give to you, the more you will be willing to generate referrals for me. When you have 39 other people generating this referral activity it is easy to see why so many people have grown their business. We have many different professions within the Chapter, so there are always quick relationships to be established as some industries work closely together.
