BNI Southwest Florida First Time VisitorsThank you for your interest in BNI Southwest Florida.  Welcome to BNI, the world's largest business referral organization!  BNI has more than 170,000 members in 60 countries, over 1,500 of whom are in BNI chapters in southwest Florida.  Every member of BNI Southwest Florida acts as a part of the marketing team for the other members of their chapter, with the aim of securing qualified business referrals for each other. 

The best way to find out about BNI is to visit a chapter.  Visitors may attend chapter meetings twice ONLY (one chapter twice, or two chapters once each), before they will be asked to make a decision about joining.  Visitors may NOT promote their business in a chapter where their business category is represented.  It is not necessary to have an invitation to visit a chapter, however it is best to contact the president of the chapter prior to the visit.

  • Only one person from any professional specialty is permitted to join each BNI chapter.
  • An individual BNI member may represent only one business category.

Joining a Chapter.  An individual may be a member of one chapter only.  Applications are available at chapter meetings, and members of the chapter will assist with their completion.  The investment to join BNI consists of an application fee, and annual participation fee.  Click here to find out more about the investment to join BNI. A new member application is reviewed by the chapter's Membership Committee, and the prospective member notified of the application status as soon as possible.

Individual chapters may also charge an additional fee to pay for the space in which their meetings take place.  These charges are separate, and in addition to the investment to join BNI, and are at the discretion of individual chapter management teams.
