The Gold Standard for Building
Business Relationships in New York City and beyond.

BNI Chapter 1 is a preeminent Manhattan networking group that meets each week, 7am at the Cornell Club just two blocks from Grand Central. At Chapter One, we have grown from 14 to 50+ members in just a few short years and we only continue to grow.

We take pride in retaining our talent – many of our members celebrating 5 and 10 year anniversaries – while continually minting new members. Our referrals are like currency, and at Chapter One we print this currency with an average closing rate of over 70%. Those are our stats, but to experience who we are – our caring leadership, camaraderie, rousing motivational moments, meaningful introductions, shared passions for what we do and how we help one another – come see for yourself! We welcome all guests, from the New York metro area, nationally, and internationally, especially now that we are often meeting virtually on Zoom as well.
