BNI (Business Network International) has formed a second chapter in the Comox Valley called BNI Momentum.

It is looking for a few more successful community business owners with strong networking skills and a desire to increase their market share through referrals.

You’re welcome to a new chapter launch and open house Nov. 30 at 6:30 a.m. at the Old House Restaurant.

Some examples of the seats we are still looking to fill are: Roofer, General Contractor, Florist, Photographer, Dentist, and a Chiropractor. If any of these seats describe you, don’t miss out on this rare opportunity. If you would like to see if your business seat is still available, contact Dave below.

BNI is a professional marketing organization specializing in word-of-mouth referrals. The BNI strategy relies on a business networking strategy that generates business referrals within many diverse networks.

BNI relies on structured business groups wherein each member carries the other’s business cards. When a “prospect” is met, the business card and testimonial information is shared and a referral is most often created.

Successful community businesses depend on word-of-mouth referrals. This well-tested program has more than two decades of experience and is international in scope.

BNI’s structured system of giving and receiving referrals creates a supportive and trusting environment for developing serious business and community relationships where network contacts are transformed into referred business.

There are more than 250 chapters across Canada — located in most major communities. Take the opportunity to substantially increase your business through referrals. Check www.bnicanada.ca.

The open house/chapter launch is Nov. 30 at 6:30 a.m. at the Old House Restaurant. The cost is $16 for your buffet breakfast. Bring cash for this event (receipts will be issued).

Seating is limited so registration is required. Come and see what all the excitement is all about.

To register, call Dave Robertson RBC Royal Bank Mortgage Specialist at 250-890-0245, e-mail david.robertson@rbc.com.  Check us out at www.facebook.com/BNIMomentum or https://twitter.com/#!/BNIMomentum.
