BNI® is excited to announce a video contest that will take place through May 19, 2017. All current BNI members are encouraged to participate.

How does your BNI story related to one of our seven Core Values? Have any of the values changed your professional and personal life? We want to hear what our Core Values mean to you! 

Select one of the seven Core Values (Givers Gain®, Building Relationships, Traditions + Innovation, Lifelong Learning, Recognition, Positive Attitude or Accountability) and share with us what it means to you and how it has impacted your life, your BNI journey, or your business.

  • Include a signed Photo Release Consent Form (downloadable here).
  • (For languages other than English) provide a written translation of the video into English, or include English subtitles in the video.


A winner will be selected in each of the seven Core Value categories. Winners will be featured in upcoming email communications and on in the Video Testimonial section.
