BNI Chicago Loop First Time VisitorsThank you for your interest in the BNI Chicago Loop region.  Welcome to BNI, the world's largest business referral organization!  BNI has more than 170,000 members in 60 countries, over 300 of whom are in BNI chapters in Chicago.  Every member of BNI Chicago Loop 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.

It is important for visitors to be aware of the following:

  • Only one person from any professional specialty is permitted to join each BNI chapter.
  • An individual BNI member may represent only one business category.
  • Members represent their primary occupation.
  • Attendance is critical.  Chapters conduct weekly business meetings of 90 min duration, and all members commit to weekly attendance.

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. 

New Chapters.  You should note that some professions (particularly residential mortgage brokers, realtors, and financial advisors) may find it extremely difficult to locate a chapter or forming group with an opening for their business category.  If you are interested in starting your own chapter, please contact the BNI Chicago Loop office at (312) 629-9500 or click hereWe will send you information about the development of new chapters.
