President's Weekly Letter, Champions SoCal BNI

Wooooooo CHAMPIONS!!!

Today was special for many reasons:

We became a SILVER chapter (In excess of 32 members for three months...on to the Gold) and were awarded our silver pins by our director, Lem Bucago. Aric Gless accepted the Champion's Spark Plug award for his tireless efforts as membership chair and promptly divided the award in fifths...one share for each member of his committee...Chuck Tipton, Bill Edman, Patrick O'Kane, and Brett Adolph

We hosted several visitors and guests

We played a cool game called BNI Feud...Lem style (film at eleven!)

The "Champions went Braugh" and celebrated the "Ides of March" with themed SMMs based around the word green, dressed in green, and upon the St. Patty's Day celebration. Dr Real won the International Tabasco Award competition with a brilliantly "lyriced" and performed song...rhymes and all! Since the ITAs inception, our asks are MORE specific, the openings are definitely catchy, AND, the Champions are watching the clock! Way to go!

We were instructed quite skillfully by Jim Sando on referrals and he elicited some help from two of our top referral givers...Angelo Dionisiou and Brett Adolph...distinct in their approach but consistent in the giver's gain philosophy.

Michael Figueroa, our newly trained GRC committee chairman, unveiled our top ten list so that the Champions can keep these professions top of mind.

Greg Beck, the Sheriff, reviewed the Chapter Biz...still tracking!

We all missed Rosanne and pray for her speedy recovery and return to the dais.

The meeting was closed with a quote!

Make it a Champion week!

Your faithful President,

Allen Buchanan
