"Reclaiming Forgotten Funds" Seminar

12:00AM / Tuesday, December 12, 2006

Great Barrington - The Great Barrington Chapter of BNI (Business Networking International), a world wide leader, word of mouth, business referral organization has organized a series of seminars for local businesses.

The next free seminar is scheduled for The Berkshire South Regional Community Center, 15 Crissey Road In Great Barrington, Thursday, December 14 @ 7:15AM.

The free seminar is called:

"Reclaiming Your Forgotten Funds"

The seminar will be led by Charles Ferris, Attorney at Law, based in Great Barrington, MA.

"It is estimated that 10% of people may have unclaimed property to be recovered from governments and other institutions. These funds are waiting to be claimed by their rightful owners - You!," according to Mr. Ferris

The free seminar will cover topics such as:

Who is holding on to unclaimed property?

Find out what constitutes unclaimed property.

How you can investigate if any of your funds are being held.

Bob O'Haver, President of the local BNI chapter is excited about the seminar series.

"In BNI, we have a saying, 'Givers Gain'. And this free seminar one of many seminars we intend to hold for the local business community. Its our way of giving back," said Mr. O'Haver, a computer technology consultant and owner of O'Haver and Company.

How BNI works.

We allow one person per profession to join our chapters. "We have one graphic designer, one electrician, one photographer, and so on," says membership chair Andreas Schmid of Seacoast Mortgage. "Being a member of BNI creates a sales team for me that I wouldn’t have otherwise."

"Last year our chapter generated over $500,000 in business. This year we will have generated almost 1 million dollars," says President Bob O'Haver. "We all carry each other’s business cards. We establish direct contact between our members and those who need their services."

BNI was started over 20 years ago and has grown rapidly into the largest networking organization of its type. Members keep an eye open for new business contacts that might benefit the membership, and those new contacts are invited to attend a meeting. Meetings are held weekly, and referrals are exchanged in a very structured manner.

To reserve a seat for the free business development seminar, or or more information on how to join our chapter, or to just visit a meeting, please contact President Bob O'Haver at 413-528-6386 or email bob@ohaver.net

Meetings are held every Thursday morning at 7:15 A.M. at the Berkshire South Regional Community Center, 15 Crissey Road, Great Barrington.
