BNI Chapter Grants Wishes to Needy Children This Holiday Season

This Christmas the Aurora BNI chapter, BNI Team XTreme, took it upon themselves to do something extraordinary for the community in which they work and live.

New Start for BNI Gateway

BNI Gateway generated $547,434 in 11 months, which is double last year’s amount. The group’s new composition contributed enormously to these changes. After the departure of 10 members, the group decided to follow ALL of the BNI procedures to the letter. The results speak for themselves! New group—new start!
