CHAPTER SPOTLIGHT: SUNRISE

Each month, we will be spotlighting a chapter by order of inception.  We will be highlighting some key success factors as well as the chapter’s answers to our questions.

The Sunrise Chapter has been a BNI chapter in Lincoln, NE since November 1, 1997.  Currently, they are meeting at the Egg & I (16th and Q) on Thursdays from 7:00 AM to 8:30 AM.  The following are some key success factors for Sunrise since October 1, 2011:

*The chapter averages 2.4 visitors per member.
*The members average 25 One-to-Ones per member.


What is your #1 goal as a chapter?
Increasing membership by adding enthusiastic, motivated, professional individuals who are interested in not only growing their business but are vested in helping others grow their businesses!


What is your chapter's key to success?
The key to our success and the success of any BNI chapter is living and breathing the philosophy of givers gain, by giving quality referrals, training moments, bringing visitors, and growing membership.


What is your favorite chapter meeting stimulant?
Doing a 60 second manager moment for the person sitting on your right!  By doing one-to-ones we should all understand each other’s business enough to do another member’s 60 second manager moment!  If you don't, then you should get to know your fellow BNI members better!  


How do you keep the FUN in FUNdamentals?
Using different “games” to help increase one-to-ones and providing different ways to include information into our 60 second moments.
