BNI - Business Networking International

Thank you for your interest in BNI San Francisco. Welcome to BNI, the world's largest business referral organization! With over 190,000 members worldwide, last year alone, BNI generated millions of referrals resulting in $9.3 billion dollars worth of business for its members. We offer members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly, business referrals. There are more than a 600 of whom are in BNI chapters in the San Francisco region. Every member of the BNI San Francisco region acts as a part of the marketing team for the other members of their chapter, with the aim of securing qualified business referrals for each other.

The best way to find out about BNI is to visit a chapter. If you have been invited to be a guest of a BNI member we encourage you to go and meet the local business people involved. To learn more about BNI chapters in your area and to be invited to visit a local BNI chapter, please contact us at 415-406-2330 x101 or at

It is important for visitors to be aware of the following:

  • Only one person from any professional specialty is permitted to join each BNI chapter.
  • An individual BNI member may represent only one business category.
  • Members represent their primary occupation.
  • Attendance is critical. Chapters conduct weekly business meetings of 90min duration, and all members commit to weekly attendance.

Joining a Chapter. Participation in a BNI chapter can be as simple as 1,2,3.

  1. Visit the BNI chapter and have the BNI members get to meet you.
  2. Submit a completed application to that chapter
  3. The chapter’s Membership Committee will review and approve the application

Once you are accepted into the BNI chapter, the process of building relationships with the members, developing the skill set of referral marketing and passing business begins.

New Chapters. You should note that some professions (particularly residential mortgage brokers, realtors, financial advisors and others) may find it extremely difficult to find a chapter. For this reason there are new BNI chapters forming all the time. If you like to be part of a new BNI chapter, please contact the BNI San Francisco Bay office at (415) 406-2330 x101, send email. We would love to discuss with you how to get started.
