Schultz and Summers Joins Lake Business Builders BNI

Schultz and Summers Engineering Joins Lake Business Builders BNI

OSAGE BEACH, MO- Shelly Hall of Schultz and Summers Engineering (SSE) was recently accepted as a member in the Lake Business Builders chapter of Business Networking International (BNI). The Lake chapter is comprised of 65 different businesses that help each other with referrals. Shelly and SSE are the only Civil engineering surveying company in that chapter and her participation fills a needed void at the Lake of the Ozarks . Chapter President Mike Waggett stated, “We are excited to have Shelly join our chapter. She has already referred business to our other members and we needed a company like SSE in our group.”

The Lake Business Builders chapter meets every Tuesday from 11:30 to 1:00pm at the Elks Lodge 2517, 5161 Hwy, 54 Oasge Beach, MO. It is a growing chapter but there are still several profession openings. You can go to and check out the current membership and possible openings.

BNI of Missouri/Southern Illinois is a dynamic organization that was established in December 1994 and is currently operated by Scott T. Simon and Teresa Simon, Executive Directors. In 2001, Area Directors were assigned certain areas to better support chapters and members. Their overall responsibility is to provide the materials, support, guidance and infrastructure to their assigned chapters for the generation of business referrals among members and for the maintenance of smooth chapter operation and the recruitment of new chapter members.

About BNI
Started in January 1985 by Dr. Ivan R. Misner, Ph.D., Founder & CEO of Business Network Int'l., Inc., (BNI) provides a positive, supportive, and structured environment to further business through word of mouth marketing.

BNI is a business and professional networking organization that allows only one person per profession to join a chapter. Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of sales people working for you because all the other members carry several copies of your business cards around with them. When they meet someone new who could use your products or service they hand your card out and recommend your services. It's as simple as that! Last year, members of BNI passed thousands of referrals which generated millions of dollars worth of business for each other!

It's simple because it's based on the proven concept of "what goes around comes around". If I help you, you'll help me and we will both benefit as a result. Would you like to increase your business by 20%, 30% 50% or as much as 100%? You can see results like this! Many have. Some participants have added as many as 50 new clients in the first 2 years!!!

Successful businesses depend on word of mouth. Word of mouth advertising is the best advertising there is and is the most cost-effective form of advertising. BNI provides a structured environment for the development and exchange of quality business leads. It does so by providing an environment in which you develop personal relationships with dozens of other qualified business professionals. By establishing this "formal" relationship with other people, you will have the opportunity to substantially increase your business. If referrals are an important part of your business, then the BNI is the organization for you.
