The exclusive global BNI Gold Badge Club is achieved by only 10% of the BNI Members worldwide. These are the people who have sponsored at least six new Members into their BNI chapters. Statistics say that 4 to 5 Visitors must be invited to get one new Member in a chapter. This means that the BNI Gold Badge Club Members have invited over 24 Visitors to each of their chapters! On average, each visitor will bring about $1000 to a BNI chapter, and 6 new Members will provide about 30 referrals in their first year.
Barbara Steckly has been a BNI member for 12 years now. With the collaboration of Barbara’s dedicated staff members, Preferred Client Services is represented at nine BNI Chapters in Edmonton and Sherwood Park. Barb has just entered the Gold Badge Club on a celebration that took place on April 26, 2017 at the BNI Alberta North Training Centre, in Edmonton. The other new members are:
Don McKay of Royal Lepage Noralta (BNI Keystones)
Jim Whitesell of Whitesell Photography (BNI Saint City),
Peter Lee of Triview Capital Ltd (BNI Premiere)
Todd Eskow of Computerized Autopro (BNI Park Power Connections), and
Nathan Osterhout of Edward Jones (Corporate Synergy).
