ACT Workshops (After Chapter Trainings)

BNI Minnesota & Northern Wisconsin offers some of the most interactive and fast-moving advanced trainings in the world. Members who attend not only leave with increased knowledge and a new set of skills, but they often leave with real referrals in hand!

ACT Workshops are 2-hour advanced trainings focused on specific topics to help you sharpen your networking skills. They are a great way to way to increase the involvement, education, and activity of your chapter members, and to network with members from other chapters.
