BNI Bethesda Business update: Week of December 7, 2020

Please remember our most recent presenters ~ Adam Lowe & Frank Milota, and what a good referral or introduction is for each of them.

We are pleased to share with you the approval for our newest member, Burman Berger, CPA of Berger & Associates. Please reach out to Burman and schedule a one-to-one if you have not already met with him. We know he is going to be a great member and we are fortunate to have him with us. Welcome, Burman!

Thank you to members who continue to pass referrals which lead to closed business.

From our President Gary Altman:

Visitors account for a significant portion of our chapter’s success.

Why not invite a visitor for this week’s meeting?

James Bonato, Mentor Coordinator:

James is making it his mission to coordinate with new & existing members, to improve our referrals and thank you for closed business. Continue to welcome James when he reaches out to you and embrace his positive message.

Notable Networker is the person who is doing 1-1s, passing referrals etc. Extra time at the beginning of Member Weekly Presentations. This week our Notable Networker is Dan Bible.

Member Spotlight is for the member who has given a lot and we need to think about them going forward. Extra time at the end of Visitor Weekly Presentations. This week our Member Spotlight is Marc Bruno.

Housekeeping Reminder(s) from above:

Meeting updates will be accepted up until close-of-business the Wednesday prior to our meeting.

Our meetings start at 06:45 and end at 08:30. As professionals, please block off this time on your calendar. If you cannot attend during this timeslot, please find a sub.

Our new website is  Thank you Adam Lowe!

Welcome back Diane Lorello! You were missed. Let’s see if we can help Diane make December 2020 a record month for her business.


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 December 11,we look forward to hearing from speakers Elaine Warren Ralph Smith.

Is there anyone you know who might be a potential referral for either of our speakers?

Why not invite them to visit our meeting?

Your suggestions for our meetings, presentations and our BNI chapter in general are encouraged and always appreciated.
