BNI was started in 1985 in Southern California by Ivan Misner, Ph. D. when he realized that while he did use advertising, marketing, public relations, direct mail, and telephone to generate new business, most of his customers came from referrals he received from his current customers, friends, and relationships. He began calling his clients for referrals and before he knew it, he had developed a network of business people meeting regularly to offer referrals to each other. This grew into BNI, which is now in over 50 countries on every populated continent, totaling more than 6800 chapters and over 170,000 members worldwide.

The Valley Referrals Chapter of BNI meets every Wednesday Morning at 7am at the Hampton Inn in Liberty. 4400 Belmont Ave. Youngstown OH 44505. For more information or to schedule a visit, contact Sam at 330-518-0080 or via email at Visit the chapter online at or
