New Networking Group to Meet in Oakton Starting in October

A new local chapter of the Business Executives Networking Group (BENG) will meet in Oakton starting in October. 

BENG is a volunteer-based organization that brings job seekers and networkers together, according to a press release. They have chapters throughout the mid-Atlantic area. 

Heather Rosen, president of franchise advisory group FranNet of Virginia, is starting the group.  

“The Northern Virginia area is ripe for a BENG chapter. It’s a region accustomed to networking and has a lot of professionals who are seeking opportunities,” Rosen stated in a prepared statement.

The group said that members will meet monthly to network to share business opportunities, job leads, and network. At each meeting, attendees bring a “one pager” to the meeting with their contact information, background, and targeted company list. Members hand out the “one pager” at the meeting before giving a 2-minute elevator speech.

Attending the meetings is free.

The chapter will meet the second Tuesday of each month from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. starting October 9th at the Oakton Library at 10304 Lynnhaven Place. 

Those interested in attending the inaugural Northern Virginia chapter meeting should contact Heather Rosen at heatherrosen@thebeng.org.  More information about BENG can be found at www.thebeng.org.
