Members of the Success Alliance chapter of Business Network International meet Tuesdays, 7:15 to 9 a.m., in the DuBois Center on the campus of Our Lady Of Lourdes Catholic Church, 750 San Salvador Drive in Dunedin.
DUNEDIN – As the Success Alliance chapter of Business Network International enters its eighth year, it has again broken a record in passing more than $5 million in business revenue for its members in the last 12 months.
The Dunedin chapter had more than 1,300 visitors to the chapter, and 20,000 business referrals passed between members, resulting in more than $16 million in closed business since the chapter’s inception in October 2006.
“Made up of entrepreneurial professionals, our chapter is on a ‘mission for more,’ passing more quality referrals among members and generating a higher percentage of new business from referrals,” said Carrie Jannazo in a press release. Jannazo is Success Alliance's chapter president. “The BNI referral system delivers business from new clients that they would otherwise not likely have, and it's not just local accounts. You have to see this group in action to believe it.”
Success Alliance will be recognized during International Networking Week, Feb. 3-7, with a Proclamation by Dunedin’s Mayor or City Commissioner to acknowledge the chapter and raise awareness of networking in the community. The chapter leaders have invited many local dignitaries, members of Chamber Groups, Rotaries and Women’s Groups. BNI supports all networking groups and encourages their members to network together.
Success Alliance invites business professionals to attend its meetings. Meetings are Tuesdays, 7:15 to 9 a.m., in the DuBois Center on the campus of Our Lady Of Lourdes Catholic Church, 750 San Salvador Drive in Dunedin. Each meeting includes open networking for all in attendance and formal introduction to the current members. The cost is $10 a person and includes a catered continental breakfast.
“Visitors are invited to assess this opportunity to see and learn the secrets of how businesses thrive on word of mouth or referral-based marketing,” said Tom Fleming, executive director for the organization.
