About Our Chapter

The Downtown Boston Platinum Chapter of BNI meets every Wednesday morning from 7:00 am to 8:30 am. It includes members from many professions who have built professional relationships with each other and enjoy the benefits of passing qualified referrals on a weekly basis. Our members are not only from the city of Boston, but surrounding communities as well. We attend and organize inter-chapter mixers and networking seminars. We hope that you will visit a meeting and see for yourself how this structured business meeting has been so profitable and successful for all of us - and could be for you.

What our members have to say...

"I have been to MANY other networking events where I shake a lot of hands and do not get any business. At BNI I have actually gotten business and dollars directly from being a member."

"I have been a member of BNI for 1 1/2 years and I have built valuable relationships with the members of my chapter and at least 150 professionals from around the Boston Area."

"Landing a new client is easy when they are waiting for your call. The BNI referral method really works."

"To be a BNI member is a great idea in a good economy... it is an extraordinary advantage in a bad one."

"I wouldn't get up at this hour if BNI was not such a fantastic organization and such a valuable part of my business."

"BNI has helped me to meet my sales goals."

"Being a small business, I am glad to have a network of professionals I can rely on for not only referrals, but also for advice, connections, recommendations and coffee."
