Monadnock BNI Celebrates 10 Years
Members of the Monadnock chapter of Business Networking International have closed more than $1 million dollars in referral business from each other over the past decade. Chapter President Kit Rautio said the power of BNI lies in its structure. “Our meetings have purpose, and better yet — results. We essentially act as a sales and support force for each other, helping each other work smarter and making introductions that can lead to new business. Our motto is ‘Givers Gain.”
With business people from more than a dozen towns, the members throw a wider net than they otherwise could as solo-preneurs or small businesses.
Each chapter accepts only one member per profession. The group welcomes visitors to their Tuesday morning meetings: 7:30 in the main room at Trinity Evangelical Church on Route 101, two miles west of the Peterborough traffic light. Visit www.bniNH.com or call Annie Card, 924-6605 or Randy Avis, 547-0402 with any questions.
