(PUT ON YOUR LETTERHEAD!)
1st May 2009
You are cordially invited to the Visitors Day meeting of the BNI Tarporley Chapter at the Macdonald
Portal Hotel, Golf & Spa, Cobblers Cross Lane, Tarporley CW6 ODJ on Friday 15th May from 7:00a.m. to
9:00a.m. We are looking for a (PROFESSION) to whom we can pass referrals.
BNI is a business and professional networking organisation whose primary purpose is to exchange
qualified business referrals. The organisation presently has over 5,291 chapters in 40 countries. Last
year, members of BNI passed over 5.6 million referrals which generated £1.45 billion in business for our
members world wide. In the UK and Ireland alone, there are over 600 BNI Chapters that in 2008 gave
over 560,054 referrals, leading to business worth £190m.
What makes BNI unique is that it allows only one person per profession to join a chapter. Thus, once
you've joined, none of your competitors can participate.
The Tarporley Chapter is currently looking for a (PROFESSION) to whom they can refer business. I would
like to personally invite you to a meeting so you can learn more about the organisation and find out if
you would be interested in generating a steady source of referral business for yourself.
Seating may be limited, so please let me know if you plan to attend; call me at (XXXXX XXXXXX) and I
will reserve a place for you! The fee to attend is £10.00. Remember to bring plenty of business cards to
pass around as you will meet lots of local business professionals.
