BNI General Policies

Policy 1: One Person, One Profession

Only one person from each BNI classification can join a chapter of BNI. Each Member can only hold one BNI classification in a BNI Chapter.

Policy 2: Represent Your Primary Professional Focus

BNI Members must represent their primary professional focus.

Policy 3: Arrive on Time

BNI Members must arrive on time and stay for the entire published meeting time.

Policy 4: Only One Seat at One Chapter

An individual can only be a Member of one BNI Chapter. A Member cannot be in any other program that holds Members accountable to pass referrals.

Policy 5: Absences and Substitutes

A BNI Member is allowed three absences within a continuous six-month period. If a Member cannot attend, they may send a substitute; this will not count as an absence.

Policy 6: Member Engagement

Members are expected to be engaged in the BNI Chapter by bringing qualified referrals and/or visitors.

Policy 7: Visitor Attendance Maximum

Visitors may attend BNI Chapter meetings up to two times.

Policy 8: Feature Presentation

Only BNI Members who have completed the Member Success Program, and BNI Directors/Director Consultants can do Feature Presentations during the BNI Meetings.

Policy 9: Leaves of Absence

Leaves of absence are possible for certain extenuating circumstances (e.g., extended medical issue that prevents member from working) at the discretion of the Membership Committee.

Policy 10: Changing Classifications

Members who wish to change their BNI classification must submit a new membership application for approval.

Policy 11: Communication Consent

All BNI membership lists are for the purpose of giving referrals only. Before sending any marketing or business solicitation communications to BNI Members outside your chapter or Director/Director Consultants, the recipient must give their consent. Consent must be freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous.
