Substitute List

If you, as a Burbank BNI member, cannot attend a regularly scheduled BNI meeting, it is your responsibility to find a substitute.  Your BEST SUBSTITUTE is a person with whom you have done business and can give a good testimonial about you.  An added benefit would be if that person is a business owner and might consider joining Burbank BNI. If you cannot find such a person, then you may want to consider asking someone from the Substitute List below.

This is a list of people who have acted as substitutes in the past and are willing to substitute again.  You may want to call one of them if you need a substitute. If he or she is available, he/she may agree to be your substitute.

Remember, a substitute may not be a member of the chapter at which he/she is substituting.

Be sure to provide your substitute with a proper 45-second commercial for your business.

Whether you call someone on this list or provide your own substitute, make sure your business is represented at Burbank!

The following guidelines should be followed for substitutes:

Things the substitute should know or have:

Substitute is prepared to give a 45 second presentation.

Bring any referrals that the absent BNI Member may have.

The substitute’s responsibility is to represent the person and the profession of the BNI member who is absent.

If the substitute's own profession is represented within the chapter; he may not talk about his profession during the meeting. The BNI meeting is for members or representatives of members only.

Things a substitute should NOT do:

Substitutes should not hand out their business cards or any literature if their profession is represented within the chapter.

Substitutes cannot give a feature presentation for the BNI member.
