How can I find out more about Joining BNI?
The best way to find out about joining BNI is to visit a chapter. By visiting a local chapter you will be able to experience the culture and structure of a BNI meeting. You will also get to know the business people involved in the chapter. If the group would be a good fit for your business and your business category is open, you may apply for the position at the meeting.
How do I apply for a BNI Membership?
We need to find the chapter to apply to first. You will need to visit the Chapter before submitting an application. Click on the CHAPTER LIST button above and select a Chapter. On the Chapter Detail page look on the right side of the page for Apply Now in the menu.
You should note that some professions (particularly financial advisors, P&C Insurance, residential realtors and mortgage brokers) may find it difficult to locate a chapter or forming group with an opening for their business category. To find out how we can assist you to start your own chapter, contact the BNI Atlanta office at (678) 264-8708 or send email. We will be delighted to speak with you about the development of a new chapter.
