BNI Bethesda Business Update: Week of May 10, 2021

Please remember our most recent presenters ~ Paul Remson and Ralph Smith and what a good referral is for each of them.  

I have attached our PALMS Report through the last meeting May 7, 2021.

Thank you to members who continue to pass referrals which lead to closed business. This was a better week for closed business.

Take a close look at Willie Gunn and his closed business! Way to go Willie.

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 May 14th we look forward to hearing from speakers Diane Lorello & Howard Joseph.

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.
