Visitor Sign in - Visitor Feedback Form - Visitor Referral Slip

Leave No Member Behind! - Many members can’t receive referrals right now but are still dedicated to helping their fellow members in their time of need. They are focusing on bringing visitors who may be potential shoppers or referral partners for their members, they are providing emotional support and friendship, they are actively posting about their members businesses on Facebook, Nextdoor and other social media sites.  Now more than ever is when the strength of our relationships, our caring for each other will make a difference to everyone in your chapter. We are always stronger together than alone. What other creative ways can we GIVE to our referral team in time when they need us the most.

The relationships you build right now will last a LONG time! Every hurricane or crisis I have ever gone through in my life I remember most fondly those people who were there for me in my time of need. They are friends to this day! BNI Online gives you the opportunity to reach out and connect, support and help people from across the state, the country or the world. I am working on putting opportunities for those members who would like to maximize this time to connect with other BNI members. We will be hosting regional contact sphere meetings, national contact sphere meetings and eventually global contact sphere meetings.  I encourage you to attend and expand your network and build relationships as much as possible during the next few months. Knowing more people will only help open doors for you and you may be able to open doors for others!
