Networking organization gets nod from Senate
In the first day of the Legislative session, the real fireworks were in the House where Democrats and Republicans battled over the rules. Before Gov. Brad Henry gave his state of the address in a joint session of the House and Senate,
Senate members heard Senate Resolution 1 filed by Sen. Randy Brogdon, R-Owasso.
The resolution declares the first full week of February “International Networking Week.” The resolution honors BNI, which claims on its Website to the “world’s largest referral organization” and was founded by Dr. Ivan Misner. Misner has been dubbed the “Father of Modern of Networking.”
To join the group, the Website says only one person from each profession specialty is allow to join a chapter and attendance is critical. Members can bring referrals or visitors to the meetings. There are two chapters in Oklahoma.
The Website sells a three-disc set that gives listeners “networking secrets,” and buttons that say, “I refuse to participate in a recession.”
