Start a New BNI Chapter

BNI's professional exclusivity rule makes it challenging for independent professionals like insurance and real estate agents, mortgage professionals, and financial advisors to find a Chapter in which their profession is not already represented. If this sounds like your dilemma, consider forming your own BNI Alabama Chapter!

Hints and Tips

  • You will need 20 or more members to form a Chapter. Do not attempt to launch a new Chapter with less than 20 members
  • Do not attempt to recruit all the members yourself. Instead, build a fledgling team of potential members and interested parties to help you recruit the needed numbers.
  • Set a target launch date for reaching your launch goal. By doing this, you will have laid the groundwork for a highly effective group of networkers who are motivated by goals and objectives!
  • Ascertain that all core group members, new members, and interested parties have paid their membership dues in full by the launch date. Stand strong on this mandate because it determines their sincerity about helping you start a Chapter.
  • Keep your energy high, your thoughts positive, and maintain momentum.
  • Stick to a plan and remain committed to the goal.
  • Keep excitement up amongst your core group by bringing new visitors and passing referrals.
  • Continuously train your core group and keep them motivated.
