The BNI chapter, “Diamonds” had their first successful non-profit day. Several organizations came to our weekly meeting to promote their groups and meet the “Diamonds”.
It was standing room only with 10 visitors joining us on a rainy afternoon. We extended invitations to many non-profit groups hoping to introduce and make connections. Each non-profit organization were allowed a 2 minute commercial to educate and ask for their perfect referral.
Some on the non-profit organizations that attended were:
- Our Children’s House
- NC Cooperative Extension
- Hand Up Home-ownership Initiative, Inc.
- United Way of Greater Greensboro
- UNCG Spartan Club
- Housing Greensboro
In addition to a lively lunch meeting, our networking group inducted 3 new members.
- Roberta Pearson with Create a Cake Catering
- Marty McFarling with Ameriprise Financial
- Joe Smith Sole Proprieter of his Masonry Company
Our group is growing rapidly and the number of referrals and closed business is also on the rise. Seats we are currently interviewing for are:
- Interior Designer
- Exterior Painter
- Health Insurance Provider
Our weekly meetings are held at Anton’s on Battleground every Thursday from 12-1:30 in the basement. Please email me if you can attend-diana @ justacloudaway.com.
We also had a toast for the new year. Our networking group will ban together and beat the recession. Giver’s Gain is our philosophy.
