BNI has been a great source of quality referrals. In addition, my chapter has been a great resource of service providers that I can trust. I no longer need to consult a phonebook or 'ask around' when I need services offered by my fellow members. For example, when I needed an electrician, an attorney, a promotional products person, an office supply person, I turned to the group. I have even had some unexpected residual benefit from being a BNI member -- I have learned how to explain my biz quickly & effectively, and learned the right way to network at almost any event.
