BNI Bethesda Business Email Update: Week of July 12, 2021

From our Leadership:

We have received an application from James Dowd Northern Alliance Electric.

Closed business is the result of our continued efforts with 1-1s, referrals and keeping other BNI members at the forefront. Please make certain to track closed business given and received and to report it on the BNI App or with BNIonline.

Follow-up with our most recent visitors/subs:

Catherine Wood Unbound Potential [email protected] a guest of Sara Evans.

Kenny Salzman Smart Automation Solutions [email protected] subbing for Diane Lorello

Paul Gadoci Flatdog Properties, LLC[email protected] subbing for Cheryl Spell

Purpose & Overview this week is being presented by Christian Zamora.

Notable Networker is the person who is doing 1-1s, passing referrals etc. We are now highlighting how networking has helped this member and what specific ideas they have to share with fellow members. This week our Notable Networker is Sara Evans.

Member Spotlight is for the member who has given a lot and we are highlighting their accomplishments and thinking about them a bit more going forward. Extra time at the end of Visitor Weekly Presentations is allocated for this honor. This week our Member Spotlight is Marc Bruno.

PowerPoint Meeting Reminder(s):

Any meeting updates will be accepted up until 12:00 Noon the Wednesday prior to our meeting. If you are sending a PowerPoint presentation, please also email [email protected] >>>> I will always confirm when I have received your presentation so if you have sent it and I have not confirmed receipt please call me.

Our meetings start at 06:45 and end at 08:30. Make certain to block this time on your calendar so you can stay engaged with other members and our weekly meeting. If you cannot attend during this timeslot, please find a sub. If you cannot find a sub, please contact me.

Our website is  Thank you Adam Lowe.


We have a blanket rule where we agree that each week’s presentations are TWO OF THE BEST PRESENATIONS EVER. This statement should eliminate the need for each member to mention how good each of the presentations were during the REFERRAL & TESTIMONIAL portion of our meeting.

This Friday July 16th we look forward to hearing from speakers Dr. Casi McFarland & Grant Layman.

Is there someone you know who might be a potential referral for either speaker? 

Why not invite them to visit our meeting this Friday?

Even better, why not make an introduction ahead of time !!!!

Your thoughts and suggestions for our meetings and our BNI chapter in general are encouraged and always appreciated. Please email or call me at any time.
