Weekly BNI Bethesda Business email update: January 11, 2021

Welcome to our newest member, Katie Smeltz We are pleased to have you!

Please remember our most recent presenters ~ Denyse Jeter-Williams & Diane Lorello, and what a good referral or introduction is for each of them.

Thank you to members who continue to pass referrals which lead to closed business. Special thanks to Gary Altman, Guy Brami, Greg Ford and Stephanie Lewis.

From our President Gary Altman:

Visitors account for a significant portion of our chapter’s success.

Please follow-up with our most recent visitors:

Purpose & Overview this week is being presented by Michael Tash.

Notable Networker is the person who is doing 1-1s, passing referrals etc. We allow for a little Extra time at the beginning of Member Weekly Presentations. This week our Notable Networker is Mary Ann Gomez Orta.

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):

Any meeting updates will be accepted up until 12:00 Noon the Wednesday prior to our meeting.

Our meetings start at 06:45 and end at 08:30. Please block off this time on your calendar. If you cannot attend during this timeslot, please find a sub.

If you do not use the video function on your electronic device, you may be cut off from the meeting.

Our new website is https://www.bethesdabusinessbni.com/ 

Continued thanks to 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 we meet on January 15,we look forward to hearing from speakers Guy Brami Justin McCarty.

Is there anyone you know who might be a potential referral for either of our speakers? Why not invite them to visit our meeting? Better yet, make an introduction ahead of time.

Your thoughts and suggestions for our meetings and our BNI chapter in general are encouraged and always appreciated.
