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!

Here We Grow!
Member Extravaganza is an opportunity for every chapter to tap into its network and invite potential members to find out what BNI is all about and fill open seats. The Growth Coordinator for each chapter will present the details for how to organize this event. The goal is to enroll six new members between March 30th and May 29th. Every member that sponsors a new member in a chapter that has reached this goal will be entered for a drawing to win a 4-day/3-night trip to Hilton Head Island in South Carolina for a celebration breakfast and workshop with BNI Founder Dr. Ivan Misner. There will be one winner announced for every 4 chapters that qualify. In addition, all qualifying sponsors will be eligible for a free iPad. Members can only benefit from the possible growth...
