Members may invite guests who are also permitted to share their own business cards plus an elevator pitch to promote themselves.
The executive leadership team consist of Daniel Italiano as President, Athena Constantinou as Vice President, and Mayur Gandhi as Treasurer.
Members are also encouraged to log into BNI university to study articles and listen to podcasts that have been created by the founder of BNI, Dr. Ivan Misner. This educational content is designed to teach and educate members on the best-practices of referral marketing.
