Purpose & Overview this week is being presented by Marc Bruno.

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 Stephanie Lewis.

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 Howard Joseph.

PowerPoint Meeting Reminder(s):

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 June 11th we look forward to hearing from speakers Dan Bible & Charlie Steele.

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.
