Purpose & Overview this week is being presented by Elaine Warren.

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 Andy Stern.

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 Dennis Elliott.

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. Make certain to block this time on your calendar so you can stay engaged with other members and our weekly meeting. 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 for this fine work.


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. If you make this comment during referrals and testimonials this week, you will have to buy the Leadership team a 2# bin of cookies from The Bean Bag.

This Friday January 29th we look forward to hearing from speakers Stephanie Lewis & Mary Ann Gomez Orta.

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. Please email or call me at any time. The first person to do so with a suggestion for this week’s meeting slide presentation,

before 12:00 noon on Wednesday January 27th will win a tin of cookies from our favorite deli.

From James Bonato – Instructions – how to update your BNI Profile.  This podcast is a supplement to it.
