It has been brought to our attention that some licensed professions are required to have their license or ID number displayed on any public profile. Since all members’ information can be displayed through regional or chapter websites, we wanted to offer a suggested remedy to conform to this requirement.
Please see the below BNI Connect screen shot(s) as to how and where you can enter this information in your BNI Connect profile and how it will be displayed in your public BNI profile. If you have any questions, please contact your local Director or BNI Connect Support.
Enter Your ID or License Number in the My Business Description
Your ID Will Appear On Your BNI Connect Members Only Profile

Thank you, done!
Done! Great idea.
Yea that's nice and all but you never said what industries need to display there license number?
These kinds of regs are usually determined by the respective state governing Boards and so will vary. So it seems that we should reach check our own before posting.
RN's in KS have always been expected to protect their license number to prevent fraud. I've been re-reading the Nurse Practice Act here to double check for changes but so far not finding anything. Won't be posting it unless I do, but will continue research and post if I find anything different so other KS RNs will know.
As a massage therapist, we are required by Hawaii law to add our license to any type of advertising. I didn't think to do it here so am happy for the reminder. The suggestion on how to enter on BNI was very helpful. Mahlao, Bonnie
Well, this did make me review the current Georgia Physical Therapy Practice Act and Rules. So in that way, I guess it was helpful. The answer: GA PTs don't have to post license numbers. They do have to display them on name tags in clinic.
Does anyone in New Jersey have a master list of these professions? I'd rather position it to my chapter as "these are the professions that are affected" vs. "if you are affected, please act."
