About Us


BNI Gold Coast Networking is one of the longest standing BNI Chapters in Fairfield County. With members involved for as long as thirteen years, we pride ourselves on being a steadfast and committed group, always open to new members, and known for warmly welcoming you into our growing family. Over the past year we have experienced immense success in our networking, which translates into referrals for our members, and money in our pockets. All visitors are welcome!


About BNI


BNI provides a positive, supportive, and structured environment for the development and exchange of quality business referrals. It does so by helping you build personal relationships with dozens of other qualified business professionals. Last year, members of BNI passed millions of referrals that generated billions of dollars of business for each other. 


Belonging to BNI is similar to hiring a salesforce to represent your business and, in return, you are representing theirs. What goes around comes around. If I help you, you'll help me and we will both benefit as a result - members are motivated by the mutual benefit and enjoy having people to celebrate their successes with.


The most successful chapters of BNI are comprised of participants who are sincerely committed to helping one another through networking. It requires commitment, but we are a team here to support one another.
