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.

The Chili Forum vision is to create a chain of fast casual restaurants, with a goal of impacting the national conversation, by creating an environment and food that is comfortable and encourages discussions that are discouraged in the workplace.
Meanwhile, creating and testing recipes and market research has led to opportunities to establish branding and more importantly profits by marketing and selling products directly and eventually through retail and restaurants.
The first brand of the Chili Forum Food Group will be marketed and sold as “Breaking the Rules” a line of gourmet dessert sandwiches using unusual ice cream sandwich ingredients such as, chipotle peppers, bourbon, rum, smoke, habanero peppers, beer, pumpkin and others. Ingredients are all natural and full flavored, such as, heavy cream, cane sugar and fresh fruits and vegetables. These are typically delivered as thank you gifts to build referral relationships.

"The atmosphere at WHIMBY meetings is unlike any other networking group in town. I appreciate the friendly, professional members and their desire to help our business. They make it easy to want to help them in return."
