Frequently Asked Questions

When are your meetings?

Our chapter meets weekly on Wednesday mornings from 7:15 – 9:00 am.  We meet most weeks of the year unless there is a holiday on a given Wednesday morning or if there is inclement weather (see below for the policy).

Be sure to check out our Events Calendar which will show when our meetings are and if there are any cancelations.

What is the inclement weather policy?

We follow Montgomery County Public Schools inclement weather policy.  If MCPS is closed or delayed at all (1 hour delay or 2 hour delay) then our meeting is canceled.

Are meetings canceled on holidays?

It depends on which day of the week the holiday falls and which holiday it is.  We try to make accommodations for the major holidays when members are likely to be absent and balance that against the need for having a consistent sales meeting every week.

Be sure to check out our Events Calendar which will show when our meetings are and if there are any cancelations.

How much does it cost to be a member?

The annual dues to be a BNI member are approximately $465/year and there is a one-time application fee of $150.  The breakfast is $11 per week paid quarterly.

Please note that our chapter does not profit off of any of these fees!  The initiation fee an annual dues are paid directly to BNI corporate. Our chapter collects the $11 breakfast/meeting fee and pays that amount directly to the Holiday Inn each week.

What time is required outside of the weekly meetings?

All BNI chapters suggest that you have at least one meeting with another member of the chapter each week for one hour and try to attend at least one networking event per month.  Most members find that they spend a minimum of 6 hours per month on BNI outside of the weekly meetings.
