The Rainmakers Chapter of Business Networking International has inducted a new president, Chris Lehmann of Eastern Sun Acupuncture, at its recent meeting.
Handing over the role is outgoing president, John Sullivan of PDM Associates. Said Sullivan, “Chris will handle the challenges and build upon our successes, having done a great job on our team. We have many, many opportunities for business people to learn how to better communicate about their business, and the success stories are phenomenal. Last year the ninety BNI chapters in Massachusetts passed over $65 million in business referrals to members.”
BNI is a business and professional networking organization whose primary purpose is to exchange qualified business referrals. It has more than 5600 chapters in operation and 125,000 members worldwide. The Rainmakers meet at the Sophia Snow Place, 1205 Centre Street, West Roxbury on Thursdays, at 7 a.m.
The Rainmakers Chapter is made up of professionals from Boston, West Roxbury, Roslindale, Westwood, Dedham, Newton, Needham and the surrounding communities and seeks other member businesses to which they can pass referrals. Only one person per profession is allowed in a chapter. They extend an open invitation to interested professionals to attend a breakfast meeting as the chapter’s guest, and learn how to generate a steady source of referral business.
