BNI Referral Solutions
The BNI Referral Solutions chapter was originally started in January of 2000. It was called the AM Networkers at that time.
When the chapter was first started, the AM Networkers met in Nashua, New Hampshire at the 99 Restaurant near Exit 7 and Amherst Street.
During 2004, the AM Networkers chapter changed its meeting place to the Crown Plaza in Nashua where it met for some time.
Then the AM Networkers chapter changed its meeting place to Milford, New Hampshire – near the traffic circle in the center of town – in 2013.
The AM Networkers chapter then moved to the Hampshire Hills Athletic Club, in 2014, where it still meets in a space on the second floor of the main building today.
During 2015, the AM Networkers chapter membership voted to change its name to the BNI Referral Solutions chapter effective July 29, 2015.
In March, 2020, once a state of emergency had been issued due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the BNI Referral Solutions chapter, as well as BNI in New Hampshire (and most other places) turned to virtual meeting using the Zoom application (click here to visit our virtual meeting). The chapter continued to hold virtual meetings each Thursday morning from 7:45 to 9:15.
During June, 2021, the BNI Referral Solutions chapter agreed to utilize a hybrid virtual and in-person meeting platform going forward. The plan was to hold the first meeting of the month in person and the following meetings of the month still virtual via Zoom (click here to visit our virtual meeting). This new scheduling was set to start with the July 1st, 2021 meeting (which happened to be the first meeting of the month of July). That meeting was held at member Stephen Christian’s home in Merrimack on Stephen’s new deck overlooking beautiful Baboosic Lake.
During July, 2021. the BNI Referral Solutions chapter agreed to hold the first of the month in-person meeting at the Nashua Senior Activity Center, located at 70 Temple St., Nashua, New Hampshire. Remaining meetings each month would continue to be held via Zoom (click here to visit our virtual meeting) until decided differently going forward.
During the August 12, 2021 meeting, the BNI Referral Solutions chapter by unanimous agreement changed its meeting start and end times from 7:45 am to 7:30 am and from 9:15 am to 9 am respectively. This change was set to be effective on August 19, 2021. The 7:30 to 9:00 am meeting time is the meeting schedule that most BNI chapters appear to adhere to.
BNI Referral Solutions chapter holds hybrid meetings - first Thursday of the month in-person and the remaining meetings are virtual meetings to mitigate spreading COVID-19.
