This episode is a rebroadcast of Episode 249.
Tim Paulin from BNI Louisiana Mississipi joins Dr. Misner this week to discuss the four pillars of a successful BNI group:
- Many (4-7) visitors or guests at each meeting. Not all of them have to qualify to join: bring people who can do business with members.
- A well-run professional meeting. Pay special attention to the hidden elements. (See Episode 9 and Episode 16 for more about these.)
- Follow-up post meeting. The leadership team needs to follow up with visitors and guests, and members need to follow up about the business they’ve passed.
- Accountability for the chapter members. One of the most important parts of accountability is attendance, and it’s up to the membership committee to maintain this.
If you can do these four things well, you’ll have a successful chapter.
