What we’re about

Northern Virginia's Business Networking at its Best!

One of the most successful Northern Virginia BNI groups, the Reston Referal Network has generated tens of millions in revenue since its inception over 15 years ago. There are numerous Business Networking International (BNI) groups internationally and locally. We are consistently ranked at the top. Why?

"Lots of Energy." "Fun." "Lots of business owners." "Good follow up." These are common comments from visitors and why our business networking group and its members do so well.

Our meetings typically include 20-30 members and guests all of whom are eager to share referrals. (Note: most members do not RSVP on Meetup, which shows just some of those attending).


Details: This is a structured meeting. Visitors get the most out of it when they arrive by noon at the latest to allow for signing in and networking.

· 11:45 to 12:10: Networking
· 12:10 to 1:30: Meeting (45-second elevator pitch from members and guests, 10-minute keynote presentation from a member, passing of referrals and reporting closed business)
· 1:30: Networking

The meeting fee is roughly $30 (at the door), which includes lunch and dessert. Bring about 40 business cards to pass around the room.

We look forward to seeing you!

How can we help you? Why Business Networking International (BNI)? BNI works. BNI makes us money and the Reston Referral Network is one of the most successful income generators in the region on a per member basis. BNI provides a framework of rules and concepts which, when followed, results in dramatic return on your monetary and temporal investment. When you become a member of the Reston Referral Network, you instantly expand your reach and enhance the quality of your selling power. You educate your chapter – dealing in specifics! – on precisely what makes a good referral for you. Then you educate yourself on what your partners, other Reston Referral Network members, are looking for … and together, you all make it happen. You give and you get: That’s BNI’s golden rule. With all of its compounded circles and intertwined networks, BNI is like a Venn diagram – and YOU are right where profit meets success. In BNI, you get what you ask for, and if you’re asking for more business, you’ve come to the right place.

Why the Reston Referral Network (RRN)? Because we generate business: Over $2.5M in income from BNI referrals to our members over the past 12 months. RRN members get an average of over $80,000 in business annually. We generate business aplenty through the time-tested BNI method of qualified referrals – after all, Referral is our middle name. The Reston Referral Network is among the more established groups in the panoply of BNI-NoVA chapters. Our group’s long history and continued persistence means that generations of business folk have found membership in the RRN to be helpful in achieving their goals and reaching new heights. It’s more than numbers, though. It’s personalities. Like attracts like, and we’ve attracted a set of people who understand the BNI system, who arrive motivated, feel a responsibility for fostering each other’s growth, share a desire for altruism, and actually like each other. Fun is not a bad word to the RRN. And, oh yeah, by the way, we’re in Reston. We gather together in one of Northern Virginia’s economic engines to bask in the business of business – and with the Reston Referral Network, business is good. Come join us.
