Featured Presentations

Each week members who have completed their BNI “Member Success Program” training have the opportunity to present a 7 minute presentation to the Chapter on their area of expertise.  These featured presentations are a way of educating fellow Chapter colleagues about your business and the type of referrals you are looking for.  We have the opportunity to present these presentations on a regular basis and they are great way to introduce casestudies, products, and updates for any given industry.
