BNI Weekly Recap: February 21st, 2020

By: Bethesda Business BNI  |  Posted: February 21, 2020

Hello BNI Team,
This week we are back at our usual meeting spot, the Rockville Hilton. We'll be in the Regency room which is upstairs in the main conference center.


  • Last week we welcomed our newest member, Arturo Lacayo. Please be sure to schedule a 1:1 with him.
  • Our next visitor day will be on March 13th. We are looking for Graphic Designers and others in creative industries.
  • March Madness starts next week. We'll have a shiny new gift card for each person with the most 1:1's, referrals, TYFCB's, and visitors. 
  • Cheryl and Denyse were last week's Hot Tamales, each one having a 1:1, a referral, and a visitor during the week. Great job! 
  • Dan sent out the updated speaker roster last week. Be sure to check it out and let him know if you have any changes. You can also see it on our chapter's website at
  • As a reminder, new members have to complete the Member Success Program (MSP) online and in-person training before you can give your presentations. If you have any questions about that, please contact your mentor coordinator, Greg Ford.
