New BNI Social Media Tool Works!

If you are a BNI member, have you registered and logged into the new BNIConnect Global system? If you ask Terri Bianchini of the Loganville Referral Pros if it’s worth your time or not, her answer will be a resounding yes! Terri is a real estate agent with Chapman Hall Realtors. A BNI member in Indiana found her through our new system that allows members to connect with every other BNI member worldwide. The Indiana member referred to her a couple that plans to move to Atlanta, and wala! Terri has a new client.

In addition to allowing BNI members to network via social media features such as friend connections, recommendations and groups, BNIConnect Global also powers our website viewed by visitors, www.BNISoutheast.com as well as individual chapter websites. To view a great example of how a completed profile is viewed by a visitor, click here and check out Glen Coleman’s page.

If you are a BNI member and have already logged in, that’s great! Please go online and complete your profile as fully as possible, including your GAINs and TOPs info. If you have had trouble logging in or have not received your registration email, please contact your chapter director as soon as possible for assistance.

BNIConnect Global is a powerful social media networking tool and an awesome benefit of your membership. Please take advantage of this opportunity starting today!

Threat of ice moves Networking event

Due to the probability that something (ice, snow) would fall somewhere in the Atlanta metroplex (and we Southerners tend to shut down everything based on just the threat of bad weather), our International Networking Day team decided on Wednesday to reschedule the IND event to Thursday, March 24th.  It will still be held at the Gwinnett Civic Center.

A major consideration was for our Expo booth vendors and our speakers, some of whom are traveling long distances and they needed to know early whether to travel or not.

On the bright side, you now have extra time to invite someone you would like to build a relationship with to come along with you!  Also, our VIP tickets sold out, so rescheduling has allowed us to rearrange and make more space available for those interested in participating in the special Q&A session over lunch with the conference speakers.  If  you are interested in upgrading your regular admission to a VIP ticket or purchasing a VIP ticket, please email melinda@referrals4life.com.  Due to the limited quantity available, VIP tickets will not open to the public via our store.

So update your calendars now.  Let’s hope our groundhog, General Beauregard Lee, was right and spring is early!  We’ll see you on March 24th for a fantastic International Networking Day and celebrate the “big thaw” instead of the “big freeze.”
