Every year during Member Extravaganza! we take the normal activities that help BNI chapters grow and turn them into a game. Most chapters will schedule at least one growth event at their chapter during this time. In addition, social events and other chapter activities are often planned to help increase member’s social capital and influence in their community.

The goal of Member Extravaganza! is chapter growth. To qualify for prizes, it's all about adding six (6) or more new members to your chapter!

A Qualifying Chapter is any chapter in the BNI Minnesota & Northern Wisconsin region that adds a total of six (6) or more new members to their chapter during the 2017 Member Extravaganza! Remember, new member applications must be dated April 3 thru June 2, 2017.*

Applications with payment must be received by the regional office on or before June 20, 2017. Sponsors name must be included on the application. Winners will be announced on July 3, 2017!


Meet Dr. Ivan Misner!

All Qualifying Chapters in the BNI Minnesota & Northern Wisconsin region will have the opportunity to personally meet BNI's founder Dr. Ivan Misner during a special breakout when you attend the regional 20-Year Anniversary Party on October 6, 2017. Qualifying Chapters will also be given the opportunity to take a team photo with their chapter members, Dr. Ivan Misner and Nancy Giacomuzzi.
