Ed Wilson, Support Services Manager at BNI Headquarters, joins Dr. Misner on the podcast to talk about why your BNI group needs a membership committee.
Why is a strong membership committee so important?
Just as a strong homeowners’ association helps all the homes in the neighborhood retain their value, a strong membership committee helps every seat in a BNI chapter retain its value for the chapter.
What are the main duties of the membership committee?
One of the most important duties is screening applications to make sure prospective members will be a good fit for the chapter. It’s the membership committee that helps maintain the classifications to prevent “classification cowboys.” Another duty of the membership committee is evaluating the contributions of members to the chapter. A third is evaluating complaints about members and adjudicates conflicts between members.
