The meetings are a structured format with time for open networking with the members and guests at the beginning of the meeting.

During the meeting, each member gives a 30 second referral request and introduction about their business.

As a visitor you will also be given the opportunity to speak and introduce yourself.

After the meeting, you’ll meet briefly with our Visitor Hosts. During this time, you’ll find out more about BNI and how to lock out your competition and how to join if you are interested.

If you’d like to attend as one of our guest contact us via the Eventbrite link.
