BNI, the largest business networking organization in the world, is a business and professional referral organization that allows only one person from each profession to join a chapter.

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!

For 30 years BNI has used a simple but elegant philosophy that exemplifies membership, "Givers Gain," or in other words, "what goes around comes around." Based on what members reported in BNI Connect, the organization passed 6.6 million referrals that generated an amazing $8.6 billion worth of business for our members in 2014! In Manhattan, we currently have more than 1400 members in 53 Chapters. 
Nineteen years ago, Manhattan BNI Executive Directors Mike Brathwaite and Todd Hallinger had a vision few recognized at that time. They shared a belief and passion that Manhattan could support a referral marketing platform like BNI and thrive. It has been a great journey for many and we continue to learn and innovate as we grow. 
We have a highly talented team of 15 Directors available to coach and mentor all aspects of networking within Manhattan BNI. We pride ourselves on providing a state of the art website where you can now explore our community and see what we can offer you. But, only seeing is believing, and we encourage you to visit a chapter near you soon, for as some sales guru noted, "you can't give a haircut over the phone." We look forward to meeting you at a Chapter event in the near future.
Happy networking and good luck!
