**As we transition to in person meetings please follow your personal level of comfort. Attending in-person is at your own risk. BNI and Clocktower Closers take no responsibility
Apply to The Clock Tower Closers by clicking on that link. You will be brought to a web page requesting your email address. Once you enter your email address, a link to an online application will be emailed to you.
The Vice President and all members of the Membership Committee can walk you through the membership application process. Once you have submitted your application, the membership committee will get a notice and contact you to set up an interview.
It will typically take one to two weeks to interview candidates, check references and make a membership determination. Please continue to attend weekly meetings during this process so the membership committee can see your commitment to attendance. Once a decision has been made you will recieve an email through the system requesting payment. After your payment gets processed you should start recieving emails with instructions on how to use the many member resources listed below:
Are you a new member of our Hudson networking group? Below is a list of resources that are available to you once your membership has been processed. Schedule a one-to-one with the Chapter Resources Mentor to make sure you're comfortable with how you can utilize these resources to maximize your membership and grow your business.
Once you are accepted into the chapter and your membership is processed by BNI Regional Headquarters, an email will be sent to the email address provided on your application. This email contains a link to set-up your username and password. BNI Connect is where we track all activity, referrals given, referrals received, one-to-ones, chapter education units (CEUs) and more. The desktop version has more resources and tracks details of all the referrals you have received since your membership began.
