Apart from evening chapters, most BNI's networking sessions are strategically conducted during the early mornings to maximize the chances of having all the members meet together at a single time slot. If conducted at normal office hours, the meetings are less likely to see a full attendance due to our members' hectic business schedules with meetings and activities. Morning sessions are also more likely to attract members and visitors with stronger motivations to collaborate and act on initiatives.
Regardless of whether you would like to eat breakfast during our meetings, meeting fees are compulsory. To secure our meeting location every week, there is a venue cost which we as a chapter need to pay.
