Our members are business owners and professionals from a broad variety of companies and industries. We share in common the belief that business success is enhanced by the relationships we build.
Our focus is promoting the development of professional relationships and business success among our members and facilitating new relationships among our respective clients, prospects and strategic partners.
We meet the third Thursday of each month from 5:30 to 7:30pm. All WHIMBY meetings are held at The Westwood Club on 6200 W. Club Lane in Richmond, Virginia.
If you would like to check us out, please arrange to attend one of our upcoming meetings as a guest of one of our members. See our member list for someone you know. A guest fee of $10 covers light refreshments and two drinks.
Membership is not restricted by geography, business focus, race, creed or gender and we do not limit membership due to overlapping professions or industries or services. New WHIMBY members are invited and sponsored by a current member.
Our meetings and programs are possible through the support of our sponsors. WHIMBY sponsors are existing members that get a focused 5 minute presentation and generously cover the expenses for the room and bar.
Our mission is to provide exceptional and personalized service. Located on Hull Street we are convenient to Brandermill/Woodlake and extremely close to Moseley and Amelia. We have a diverse team who strives to ensure all of our customers are happy and have a remarkable experience with us.
I work with an amazing team that is engaged in our community and seeks out additional ways to give back. My presentation is going to center around our community involvement, our charity emphasis and volunteer efforts.

Minuteman Press of Glen Allen is taking this opportunity to introduce our members to a great organization, Rise Against Hunger. So, instead of boring you with magic tricks and fabulous printing, I want to turn over the mic to my son, Blane, to talk about the amazing work this group is doing in our community, our state, and in 74 countries across the world.
For more information, contact Max at 804-290-4407 or visit his business online at GlenAllen.MinutemanPress.com.
