The West End Business Association (WEBA) of Alexandria, was formed in 2005 to unify, strengthen and serve the West End business community. WEBA members benefit by working closely with other local businesses, networking with local business owners and city leaders. Collaborating with each other and learning about the political process enables WEBA members to stay informed of policies, new businesses and ordinances that affect our business world. All members are eligible to participate on Committees (see Standing Committees page for contact person).
Building relationships makes our community stronger.
WEBA hosts a networking Happy Hour every second Thursday of each month at a different business. These events are free to members who pre-register. Guests pay just $15.00. Hosts and sponsors have the opportunity to tell guests about their businesses and specials for WEBA members. Contact the Programs Committee Chair to host or sponsor an event.
Lunch and Learns
These quarterly luncheons are held at member West End restaurants and hotels, and designed to inform and entertain members on a wide range of topics that affect our businesses.

Why We ♡ WEBA
“Please let the board know how much I liked the Lunch & Learn today at WEBA. …Of course Mary Ann Burstein was making everyone feel like family while she was setting up connections and taking pictures. I think this kind of programing can put WEBA in the forefront of business education programs offered in Alexandria.”
“It’s great to find local organizations that support the local community and being a member of WEBA allowed me to connect and support the West End Business Community and many of the local initiatives in Alexandria.”
“I thought the happy hour mixer was one of the best I have been to. Everyone was so very nice, approachable and the energy was fantastic.”
