In working with forming chapters and talking to potential new members, it’s becoming clear how important BNI Connect and now, BNI University, is to the success of BNI members. The downside of this, is that a potential new member cannot experience any of it until they become a BNI member. Taking this into consideration, the Western PA branch wants to help potential members learn all they can about BNI. We want to share the foundation and pillars of which BNI is built upon. Therefore, this next series of blog posts will overview BNI. These posts will discuss how BNI can help grow your small business exponentially. We will cover topics such as: BNI Core Values, BNI University, and the Future of BNI.
BNI Core Values
What even are core values? They are fundamental beliefs of a person or organization. These guiding principles dictate behavior and can help people understand the difference between right and wrong. Core values also help companies to determine if they are on the right path and are fulfilling their goals by creating an unwavering moral guide. The following video is the first in a series of overviewing BNI Core Values. It features Founder and Chief Visionary Officer, Dr. Ivan Misner. In this five minute video, he covers topics of business strategy and company culture.

Introducing the BNI Free Trail
Potential members are free to visit a BNI group twice and participate in the meeting. Just like a regular member, potential members will get to participate in:
- An open network with the group members – to get the most return we recommend to members and guests to show up 15 minutes before the start of the meeting, giving you thirty minutes to meet and greet members and other visitors
- An opportunity to present a picture of your ideal client and what you offer to them as a way of growing your business
- A free ten minute educational presentation from one of the members
