Learn More About Us

We bring the business community together to

solve regional issues.

We’re not the Region’s largest Chamber simply due to membership numbers. We’re also the biggest because our reach extends throughout Northern Virginia’s business community (including Washington, D.C. and Maryland). This reach drives our work: we focus entirely on our Region’s business community and the issues it faces. It is through this work with business leaders and government officials that we leverage the power in our business community’s collective voice.

We advocate for region-wide economic growth

No matter what the world throws at us, we ensure that Northern Virginia business has a voice in the legislative process. Our full-time Government Affairs Team works with regional business leaders to make certain that Chamber members are well-represented in the halls of the state legislature, particularly as regulations are drafted and bills are debated.

It's so vital to business that it is used as a barometer to determine a community’s health and potential. We are deeply committed to addressing our Region’s workforce challenges in creative and highly impactful ways.
