DAYTON, OH – The Green Team Chapter of Business Network International (BNI), will host a professional networking event and visitors’ day during their weekly meeting on Wednesday, April 13th, from 7:30 to 9:30 AM at The Galleria, 4140 Linden Avenue in Dayton. The free, no-obligation session is open to all entrepreneurs, business managers, and salespeople in the Dayton/Miami Valley region.

The purpose of BNI is to help members create a wide-reaching, reciprocally profitable referral system free of internal competition, something unavailable from other professional networking options. Founded in 1985 by Dr. Ivan Misner, BNI now has more than 10,600 chapters worldwide that have earned its nearly 300,000 members more than $19 billion in revenue. The Green Team BNI Chapter is one of 17 in the Dayton, Ohio region.

The Green Team BNI is one of 17 chapters in the Dayton/Miami Valley region – and they’re growing!

Gery Deer is the founder and creative director of GLD Enterprises Communications, Ltd., a public relations and media firm in Jamestown, Ohio, and president of The Green Team BNI chapter. “In April of this year, my business celebrates 25 years, largely due to the professional connections and financial benefits of my BNI membership,” Deer said. “Our visitors day offers the opportunity to make new contacts and experience, first-hand, what profitable networking looks like.”

Along with a global networking opportunity, BNI members have access to regular webinars and support material to help sharpen their skills in everything from sales to public speaking. During each weekly meeting, members and visitors follow a specific agenda and are offered the opportunity to introduce themselves to the group and give a one-minute sales presentation. At this special visitor event, there will also be a special discussion about referral marketing in general and detailed information on the value of BNI.

Using the organizational philosophy called, “Givers Gain,” members exchange qualified, referrals rather than cold leads. “When members exchanged referrals in BNI, the giver has already communicated with the subject beforehand,” Deer explained. “Qualifying the referral before passing it, rather than giving a cold lead, nearly assures a closed sale.”

At present, the Green Team BNI Chapter is looking for applicants to fill a host of classifications including landscaper, home inspector, health insurance provider, property title agency, massage therapist, and more. Visitors are encouraged to bring plenty of business cards and invite others as well.

A brief visitor orientation will be held immediately following the business meeting. For more information visit the chapter’s website www.thegreenteambni.com or contact chapter Visitor Host, Mark Myers, at (937) 545-8587 or by email, mmyers@usavingsbank.com.
