Weekly BNI Bethesda Business Update: Week of January 18, 2021

Please remember our most recent presenters ~ Justin McCarty & Howard Joseph, 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, Dennis Elliott, Steve Feldman, Greg Ford, Howard Joseph, Stephanie Lewis and Ralph Smith.

From our President Gary Altman:

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

  • Kenny Morales from All Pro Chimney [email protected] Kenny has also submitted his application. If anyone has any questions or concerns please reach out to Justin McCarty.

Please follow-up with our most recent visitors:

Purpose & Overview this week is being presented by Oupekkha Chanthavong

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 Arturo Lacayo.

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 Ralph Smith.

PowerPoint Meeting Reminder(s):

Any meeting updates will be accepted up until 12:00 Noon the Wednesday prior to our meeting but this week COB Wednesday will work just fine.

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 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.

This Friday January 22nd we meet at 06:45 and we look forward to hearing from speakers Gary Altman & Greg Ford.

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 in acknowledgement of this correspondence, simply say nice email Steven to win a free tin of cookies (your choice) from The Bean Bag.
