Covid-19 Protocols

Covid-19 protocols - In-Person Chapter Meetings


Gold Standard in Safe & Effective Networking

We will always strive to be the ‘Gold Standard in Safe & Effective Networking’.

We want to you enjoy the In-Person meeting experience. The Health and Safety of all Meeting attendees is paramount, and we will always be aligned with current Government Guidance regarding Covid-19 protocols.

Therefore, to ensure maximum safety for all Meeting attendees the steps that we have taken are as follows…


  • Covid-19 Risk Assessments have been submitted to BNI by the Venue
  • BNI Chapters have undertaken their own Risk Assessments
  • We have removed touchpoints as much as possible, reducing handling items with our revised Meeting Agenda (see final point below)
  • Chapters now have a Welcome Table upon arrival rather than Sign-in Table, negating the need for attendees to personally Sign-in
  • All Leadership Teams have received training on new Chapter Meeting etiquette and that it has been communicated to all members
  • The BNI Meeting Agenda will stay the same bar not passing the Business Card box or having a Door Prize


Please bear in mind…

  • Venues may have their own additional Covid-19 protocols that must be respected
  • Attendees will have different levels of comfort in terms of contact with each other, please respect that and act accordingly
  • Many members, substitutes and visitors will have never seen an In-Person meeting and may be a little nervous
