Looking to network in Wilmington, NC? Come visit our BNI group! We meet every Thursday from 8:45-10:15 am at Waterman's Brewing (1610 Pavillion Pl.
Wilmington, NC 28403). We are a dedicated group of professionals who create quality referrals by networking on each other’s behalf. Think of this as your extended sales force. Are you looking to meet someone specific? Maybe one of our members can introduce you! Are your resources stretched thin? Why not add another twenty sales people to your staff? At BNI we only accept one person per professional specialty. This means you have no competition within the chapter for business referrals. Think about it, a new business in town calls the printer about advertising. The printer suggests they call the computer repair person for installation and setup of the new office. The computer repair person suggests they call the credit card processor in the group. The credit card processor suggests our banker and a payroll company. The payroll company suggests our insurance agent. The insurance agent suggests our radio advertising specialist. The radio advertising expert recommends the carpet and tile cleaner to keep things looking spiffy after all that new foot traffic. One customer can feed multiple businesses; with BNI you are in the buffet line! Wilmington Advisory Board chapter of BNI meets every Wednesday at McAllister’s Deli on S. College road by UNCW. Early networking between members starts at 11:30 and our meeting begins at 11:45. Each networking session allows members to tell other members what they need and/or who they want to meet. Members are also encouraged to schedule one to one meetings with each other outside of the regular meeting for deeper conversations about how they might be able to leverage customers and solutions for one another.
Mission: To help each other increase profits by making connections with quality business professionals, providing qualified referrals, having one-to-one meetings with other members to increase our knowledge of each other's businesses, and inviting guests with the potential to become new members.

Great questions⬇️by Dr. Ivan Misner
1. Am I being realistic about the amount of time it will take in my profession to gain the critical level of confidence I need?
2. Am I regularly making stimulating, educational presentations to my fellow networkers about the value I provide my clients.
3. Am I doing business with others in my network so I can give them dynamic testimonials and steer business to them so they will return the favor?
4. Am I meeting regularly with my networking colleagues to learn about their businesses so I can confidently refer my contacts to them?
"I want referrals and I want them now"
Let's all get together this Thursday, October the 6th at 8:45M to hear our Window Master and good buddy, Justin Gates with Budget Blinds.
We are excited to hear his presentation and learn more about his business.
The more we share, the better our fellow members can refer and make connections. Keep in mind industries that are in, Dr. Ivan Misner calls, 'common contact spheres' who share the same target audience aa Justin. These contact spheres can often lead complementing each others business leading to more interactions with the same audience.
We will see you all virtually on Thursday! Please remember to reach out for a substitute if you're unable to attend this week's meeting.
