5-Star BNI Chapters 

5-Star Chapters are implementing the BNI success system and are chapters you can feel confident in applying to and referring colleagues to apply. To earn a five-star rating, chapters must make sure these things occur:

  • President conducts Chapter SUCCESS Meetings monthly and submits monthly report by the 10th of each month (for the previous month)
  • Vice President conducts Membership Committee Meeting and submits monthly report by the 10th of each month (for the previous month)
  • PALMS reports are submitted no later than end of day Monday for the previous week’s meeting
  • Secretary/Treasurer accurately marks attendance or enters visitor information in BNI Connect® by end of day Friday of each week’s meeting
  • At least one member from the chapter attends a Leadership and Support Team Roundtable that month (only one star is given, no matter how many members attend). Every chapter received a star for October, since no Roundtables were held.


Congratulations to the 22 chapters who earned 5-Star status for the month of October!
