Manhattan BNI 2021 Membership Drive

Our 2021 Membership Drive will help all chapters grow and will give all members a chance to participate and win prizes. This year’s focus is 'sponsoring' members, which is more than just inviting people.

This is a mindset change. We can all invite, but, if we make our 'intent' to sponsor a member this will change our culture and lead to more productive chapters. To facilitate this we have created a segmented contest, so you can have the best chance for success.

There will be 3 separate contests: The traditional April–May event, then a Summer contest during June–July–August, and a September–October–November contest for the final winners. There will be drawings in each segment even if you only sponsor 1 new member. All applications must show a sponsor to qualify (director consultants, transfers & alumni are not qualified).

April – May

  • Sponsor 3 new members during this period: $100

  • Sponsor 5 new members during this period: 1 year renewal at no cost

  • All sponsors eligible for Final Drawing: $500

  • These will accumulate through November and all will qualify.

June – July – August

  • Sponsor 3 new members during this period: $100 (not cumulative, this period only).

  • $500 winner from all sponsors during THIS PERIOD.

  • These will accumulate into November drawing and towards the free renewal.

September – October – November

  • All new sponsors will get into the final drawing with all previous ones for another $500 drawing.

  • Everyone reaching the 5 sponsorship level will get a FREE 1 year renewal and recognition on our homepage.

We hope you embrace this concept of “Sponsor One” in 2021 and remember how thankful YOU were to a friend or associate who invited you (probably more than once!) to your first BNI meeting.

Good luck!

Are you ready to Visit a BNI Chapter?

Now, more than ever, business people need to
network to stay in business.

BNI provides a positive, supportive, and structured environment to exchange quality business referrals.

BNI, the largest business networking organization in the world, is a business and professional referral organization that allows only one person from each profession to join a chapter.

Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of sales people working for you because all the other members carry several copies of your business cards around with them. When they meet someone who could use your products or services they hand your card out and recommend your services. It's as simple as that!

Givers Gain

For over 30 years, BNI has used a simple but elegant philosophy that exemplifies membership, "Givers Gain," or in other words, "what goes around comes around." Based on what members reported in BNI Connect, the organization passed millions referrals that generated an amazing $16.7 billion worth of business for our members last year! In Manhattan, we currently have more than 1300 members in 52 Chapters.

More than 20 years ago, Manhattan BNI Executive Directors Mike Brathwaite and Todd Hallinger had a vision few recognized at that time. They shared a belief and passion that Manhattan could support a referral marketing platform like BNI and thrive. It has been a great journey for many and we continue to learn and innovate as we grow.

We have a highly talented team of Directors available to coach and mentor all aspects of networking within Manhattan BNI. We pride ourselves on providing a state of the art website where you can now explore our community and see what we can offer you. But, only seeing is believing, and we encourage you to visit a chapter near you soon, for as some sales expert noted, "you can't give a haircut over the phone." We look forward to meeting you at a Chapter event in the near future.

Happy networking and good luck!
