Dear Members,
We hope that you feel the wonderful energy in our region and in your chapters. Every one of our chapters has added members or have applications in process since the beginning of the year.

This is amazing! Please remember that every member brings on average above $30,000 in Thank You For Closed Business, and that is the real value of growing your chapter.
The majority of our members are in the Green or in the Yellow in the Power of One report. Wow! Well done y'all. We are super excited, feeling the energy and supporting your growth.

The Power of One is our method to keep accountability. In the month of January the majority of our region has been in the Green/Yellow! That's a great achievement. Way to go! Some members have excelled in their activity and scored 100 in The Power of One.

Thank you to all who sponsored new members in the month of January! Sponsoring a new member is an opportunity to help another business owner to grow their business and develop. Inviting them to BNI can be the biggest gift that you can give.
