CHESTERFIELD, Va. - Dec. 26, 2013 - PRLog -- Business Network International (BNI) - Central Virginia has awarded the Abundance BNI Chapter Platinum Status for exceeding 50 members consistently for the past quarter. The Abundance BNI Chapter was launched in September of 2000 with a handful of members and now has 51 members, and last year alone generated $3.6 million worth of referral business. Bobby Quinn, Sales Manager of Griffith Heating and Cooling, who has been a member of BNI for more than 13 years and is currently the group's President, said "Abundance BNI has provided me with the majority of my new business since I joined the group and many of the members have become close friends as a bonus. Abundance will always be a vital piece of my puzzle." BNI only allows one business per classification in each Chapter so there is no competition, and the group functions as a sales team for each other by serving as each other's eyes and ears in the community. The meetings are always open to visitors, and you are welcome to attend any Chapter meeting twice before making a decision to join. “By achieving this major milestone, Abundance BNI has joined an elite group of BNI Chapters around the world,” said Mark M. Deutsch, CEO and Executive Director of BNI-Central Virginia.

And they’re right here in Chesterfield, that is pretty darn awesome.” “The formula for BNI's success is what we call the ‘Giver's Gain Philosophy,’ which is an unselfish attitude that is contagious and promotes creditable, profitable, and lasting business relationships” said Dawne Brooks Gulla, Chief Networking Officer and Executive Director of BNI-Central Virginia.
