BNI Weekly Recap: May 8th, 2020

By: Bethesda Business BNI  |  Posted: May 08, 2020

Hello BNI Team,


  • Our next visitor's day will be June 12th. We are specifically looking for maid or cleaning services. As always, however, any and all visitors are welcome and encouraged. 
  • Dan Diggs gave a great networking moment on the 12 Best Practices of Business Networking. Rather than re-write it, just click the link and read it for yourself. 
  • BNI Will be rolling out a new look and feel on Friday. Stay tuned for more information.
  • At our monthly ambassador's meeting, I was told that BNI Global is discussing if and when to start holding in-person meetings again. Nothing has been finalized, but the current thinking is that the online meetings will continue through 2020 with the possibility of limited in-person meetings (maybe once per month) being added as safety permits. 
  • BNI Central Maryland is looking for ways to help improve our member to member engagement in the online meetings. Please email me directly with any thoughts you have on how we can improve things. It's always good to know what we are doing well and what we can be doing better. 

Our featured presenters last week were Casi McFarland & Gary Altman. Keep both of these fine people in mind when you are out and about this week.

This week we have Greg Ford & Cheryl Spell presenting.
