We bridge the gap between businesses and elected officials.

For more than 97 years, the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce has been recognized as The Voice of Business in Northern Virginia®. We work with business leaders, top institutions, other business organizations, and a diverse group of elected leaders to stress the importance of regionally-focused collaboration throughout Northern Virginia.

Our advocacy portfolio includes full-time representation in Richmond during the General Assembly session, a robust Political Action Committee (NOVABIZPAC), and the facilitation of engagement between leading business executives and elected leaders throughout the year. The Chamber hosts policy focused events of all sizes throughout the year. From intimate forums with local, regional, and statewide leaders, to our largest events, like our “Top of the Ticket” Debate, broadcast statewide in partnership with NBC Washington and the Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University. We also have direct advocacy relationships with regional institutions like Northern Virginia Community College. There are countless ways for our members to engage with Virginia’s most influential policy makers.

In addition, the Chamber can advocate for a member's business on local government matters like land use and taxes, showing the positive economic effects of a good business environment and growth in Northern Virginia.
