The theme of the 2016 Global Convention, for BNI Directors from across the world, was Be Passionate, Be Remarkable, BNI! The convention took place in Anaheim, CA November 9-10, and provided a look back at the last two years as well as a look of what is to come in 2017. While BNI's vision is "Changing the Way the World Does Business, it is important to remember we are thinking globally, and acting locally!

- Start everyday with gratitude
- Recommit to BNI's Core Values
- Givers Gain
- Building Relationships
- Life Long Learning
- Traditions Plus Innovation

Vision was one of the key words at this year's event. Many business people have a vision of where they want to take their business. We worked on personal visions, regional visions and even how to create a chapter vision. Part of a chapter's vision is reliant on your chapter's standards and the minimum you expect from each other. Do you have a vision? If the answer is no, it may be time to write the next chapter in your book, or your chapter's book.
