Welcome to BNI Louisiana!
Now, more than ever, business people need to network to stay in business. BNI is the largest business networking organization in the world and provides a positive, supportive, and structured environment. We offer members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly, business referrals.
BNI is a business and professional referral organization that allows only one person from each profession to join a chapter. Last year alone, BNI generated 5.4 million referrals resulting in 6.5 billion dollars worth of business for its members!
Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of sales people working for you because all the other members carry several copies of your business cards around with them. When they meet someone who could use your products or services they hand your card out and recommend your services. It's as simple as that!
