BNI Louisiana is forming a new chapter in the Baton Rouge area, a news release states.

The BNI Vision Partners Chapter will meet weekly at 10 a.m. Thursdays at La Madeleine, 7615 Jefferson Highway.

The group is seeking professionals interested in expanding their business by maximizing marketing efforts through word of mouth, the release said.

Only one person representing a professional specialty can join a BNI chapter. Members participate in up to 52 networking meetings each year and receive tools to help them network effectively.

“Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of salespeople representing your business, and in return you are representing their businesses,” BNI Director Consultant Cami Miller said. “BNI members are sincerely committed to helping one another grow their businesses through networking.”
