The BNI Business Exchange chapter of BNI in Boca Raton is planning annual spring Visitors' Day Breakfast on Wednesday, May 28, 2014 from 7:00-8:30 a.m. at Maggiano’s Little Italy, 21090 St. Andrews Blvd., (West of Town Center Mall) in Boca Raton. 

BNI (Business Network International) 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 shared over one million referrals generating over $500,000,000 worth of business for each other.  What makes BNI unique is that it allows only one person per profession to join a chapter.  Thus, once you have joined, none of your competitors can participate in the same chapter.
