About BNI 11

Successful businesses depend on word of mouth advertising. It is the best and most cost-effective form of advertising possible. BNI provides a structured environment for the development and exchange of quality business referrals. It does so by providing an environment in which you develop personal relationships with dozens of other qualified business professionals. By establishing this “formal” relationship with other people, you will have the opportunity to substantially increase your business.


Formed in 1999, Chapter 11 was the recipient of the 2006, 2007 and 2008 Founder’s Award for being one of the top 3 revenue-generating chapters in New York City and currently (February 2020) is ranked as the #1 rated Chapter in the Manhattan Region.
