Burbank, CA – Local referral networking group, BNI Burbank, set a chapter record when they generated over $490,000 of referral business for its members in 2016. Members attributed this new record to a growing chapter, and its actively engaged membership. The chapter meets every Tuesday morning at 7am at the Coast Annabelle Hotel on Olive Ave.
BNI Burbank is part of BNI, the largest international referral-networking organization in the world. The mission of BNI is to help members increase their business through a structured, positive and professional referral marketing program that enables them to develop meaningful, long-term relationships with quality business professionals.
