BNI Weekly Recap: June 12th, 2020

By: Bethesda Business BNI  |  Posted: June 12, 2020

Hello BNI Team,

I hope everyone is having a productive and profitable week. Last week we experimented with adding 10 additional seconds to each member’s weekly presentation and referrals/testimonials section, raising it from 30 to 40 seconds each. Our meeting did run over by about 5 minutes despite starting the presentation portion of the meeting at 7:05, but the late ending may have also been attributable to me running the meeting for the first time.


·         We had a great visitor day last week. Our next visitor day will be on July 10th, where we are looking for business brokers.

·         Our TYFCB for the year is $1,171,799. Not too bad, all things considered.

·         Don’t forget to send all announcements and presentations to Brooke by COB on Wednesdays.

·         Reach out to Dan Bible if you haven’t received your quarterly dues refund yet.



·         Kim Murray / looking to get into contact tracing -- invited by James Bonato

·         Jesse Burns, Friends and Family Flooring  – Invited by Robyn Parks -- [email protected]

·         George Cholokian, CBS Imaging & Copiers -- invited by Stephanie Lewis -- [email protected]


·         For Brooke Bruch / Marcy Santos

·         For OC Chanthavong / James Sutton

·         For Guy Brami / Erik Puskar

·         For Stephen Feys / Kenny Salzman

We missed you: Ralph Smith.


Our featured presenters last week were Dan Diggs & Marc Bruno. Keep both of these fine people in mind when you are out and about this week. 

This week we have James Bonato & Steven Feys presenting.
