Erica Gufford, Volunteer Coordinator for the BNI Foundation
Every year, the BNI Foundation is lucky enough to be a guest at BNI US Conference. BNI and the BNI Foundation have a unique relationship – we are two separate entities, but exist simultaneously, sharing resources and embodying the concept of Givers Gain®.
This year, from May 17-20 in Charlotte, North Carolina, Stephanie Starr, the BNI Foundation Executive Director, will be joined by her “Dream Team” of Volunteers from around the US to help to educate and inform BNI leaders how the BNI Foundation can help Members Make More Money while cause networking. The BNI Staff and volunteers, including some BNI Executive Directors, will be on hand to help BNI Executive Directors and Director Consultants learn how to implement service projects in their area to increase their bottom line, improve member retention and growth, and spread the word about BNI in their area.
Here are four main ways you can learn about the BNI Foundation and its programs at the BNI US Convention:
- Our Booth – Learn more about the BNI Foundation and its programs! Opens at 8 AM on May 18th and closes at 4pm on May 20th.
- Our Walk and Talk – We are hosting a Fun Walk and Talk (or Run) on Saturday morning, bright and early at 6:15! Register here and be sure to get a premiere spot and t-shirt.
- Our Auction – Have you always wanted to become a Sonoma Wine Maker or attend a baseball game at Wrigley Field on the rooftop or vacation on the beach in Galveston? If so, come bid at our silent auction on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the BNI Foundation Table. We will announce all winners during the Gala. You can find the details here.
- Our Round Tables – The BNI Foundation is hosting an information round table on Saturday, May 20th. Stop by our table to sit down with Stephanie Starr and other Executive Directors, Director Consultants and Regional Administrators who are working with the BNI Foundation to see how to implement it in your region.
Feel free to drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org before the show to set up a One to One.
We cannot wait to see you there!
