2015 Extravaganza Winners

I would like to Congratulate Joyce Grinewich (left) and Cher Kempf who won the 2015 Member Extravaganza trip to Hilton Head. The winning members belong to the BNI Professionals and BNI Signature Chapters. I was very appreciative to have an in-depth conversation with them and share in their excitement over the trip. They experienced a personal “One to One” with Ivan Misner, our Founder and Chairman and received valuable information to take back to their chapters. I encourage all chapters to get involved with the 2016 Member Extravaganza and again I want to thank all of our members for living up to our company’s philosophy, “Givers Gain”!

Thank you members!

David Zemer, Executive Director BNI Tri-State Network



Welcome to BNI New York Buffalo-Niagara

Our members invite you to experience the entrepreneureal spirit of BNI New York Buffalo.

Now, more than ever, business people need to network to stay in business. BNI provides a positive, supportive, and structured environment to exchange quality business referrals.BNI is the largest business networking organization in the world. We offer members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly, business referrals.

Last year Members of BNI passed 5.4 million referrals, which generated over $6.5 Billion dollars worth of business for each other! BNI is a business and professional referral organization that allows only one person from each profession to join a chapter.

Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of marketing people working for you because all the other members carry several copies of your business cards around with them. When they meet someone who could use your products or services they hand your card out and recommend your services. It's as simple as that!

It's simple because it's based on the proven concept of "what goes around, comes around." If I help you, you'll help me and we will both benefit as a result. Would you like to increase your business by 20%, 30%, 50% or as much as 100%? You can see results like this! Many have. Some participants have added as many as 50 new clients in the first 2 years!!!
