BNI Miami-Dade Wins the

Largest Average Chapter Size Award for 2017!


Charlotte, NC – January 10, 2017: “The BNI Foundation is poised for a watershed year due to  the support of our newest team member,” says Board Chair, Jeff Stay of Miami, FL.

With a focus on children and education, the BNI Foundation received it’s non-profit status earlier this year.  “We are thrilled to announce that Stephanie Starr has joined our Charlotte, NC-based team as our Executive Director,” Stay continues.

Stephanie graduated from the University of Michigan with a BS degree in Psychology and Hunter College School of Social Work with a MSW. She obtained her Project Management Professional (PMP) certificate in August 2016 and has been a LCSW, licensed clinical social worker since April 1997.

“Stephanie’s 14+ years of leadership and management experience in both for-profit and non-profit agencies will benefit the BNI Foundation’s operations,” according to Stay.

Starr’s former roles included directing complex strategic business initiatives in the areas of process improvement, organizational transformation, organizational restructuring, and human capital management. Some of her accomplishments in her last position at a non-profit agency include increasing the agency budget by 67%, increasing annual campaign gifts by 41%, implementing a comprehensive and integrated client and donor software system, rebranding the agency (including logo), updating the agency website, developing a donor stewardship and legacy program, and revamping and overhauling all workflows and operations.

“We are very excited to bring Stephanie into the BNI Foundation to help us achieve our ambitious organizational goals,” maintains Stay.

Stephanie has lived in Charlotte for almost 21 years with her husband, Steve and their three children. “I am very excited to use my skills and expertise to benefit a non-profit with such a great focus and opportunities as the BNI Foundation,” Starr shares.

With BNI Foundation affiliates in five countries, Starr now has the opportunity to expand her horizons beyond the confines of Charlotte.
