Build Your Business
Manhattan BNI Chapter 7
About Our Chapter
Discovering BNI 7 can never bring you any less business...
Chapter 7 was formed in 1998 with 15 original members, several of whom are still active in the chapter. Each week dozens of members from a wide range of fields meet to help one another build our businesses.
Here's how BNI will boost your business:
- We're part of the largest business networking organization in the world.
- Only one representative from a business classification is allowed per chapter. Once you've joined your competitors can’t.
- Every applicant for membership is evaluated for professional competence, integrity and reliability.

Successful businesses depend on referral marketing. Promotion through referral marketing is the best advertising there is. BNI provides a structured and supportive system of giving and receiving business. It does so by providing an environment in which you will develop personal relationships with dozens of other qualified business professionals. By establishing this "formal" relationship with other people, you will have the opportunity to substantially increase your business.
- Increased exposure to many other people and businesses.
- Substantially increased business through networked referrals and recognition by one's peers.
- Tools to network more effectively, including an orientation DVD giving the "Formula for Success" in BNI, a, badge, a vinyl card holder to carry members' business cards, referral slips, marketing materials for your chapter and much, much more.
- Participation in up to 52 networking meetings per year.
- Quarterly newsletters with educational material on networking, public speaking, and business.
- Participation in business tradeshows (where you'll have an opportunity to market your chapter and your business).
- Free periodic workshops on networking.
- And much, much more!!!
"One-to-Ones" are meetings with other members outside of the regular Wednesday morning meetings. One-to-Ones are an opportunity to get to know other members and the services their businesses offer. They are particularly helpful for new members, for this reason they are counted as referrals during the first two months of membership. For all members, One-to-Ones are the best way to get to know the others and their businesses and, in turn, boost referrals.
