How can I get invited as a visitor to a BNI meeting?
To insure that you have a welcomed visit it would be best to have you as an expected guest. This can be done a number of ways. One way is to contact our regional office and have us notify the chapter that you will be visiting. Please contact the BNI Northern California office at (707) 780-8118, send email or complete the form on the homepage. You can also be invited by a BNI member or contact a local chapter's president directly. You may also complete the information request form on the homepage of this site.
The best way to find out about joining BNI is to visit a chapter. By visiting a local chapter you will be able to experience the culture and structure of a BNI meeting. You will also get to know the business people involved in the chapter. If the group would be a good fit for your business and your business category is open, you may apply for the position at the meeting.
Where can I get a BNI Membership Application?
When you visit a chapter or core group you will be given an application. You may also click here to access a BNI Membership Application in PDF format.
You should note that some professions (particularly financial advisors, P and C Insurance, residential realtors and mortgage brokers) may find it difficult to locate a chapter or forming group with an opening for their business category. To find out how we can assist you to start your own chapter, contact the BNI Northern California office at (707) 780-8118 or send email. We will be delighted to speak with you about the development of a new chapter.
