Growth. It can be the greatest challenge within business.. And its greatest reward. This is why the GovCon Council has selected "Growth" as its 2020 Council theme and base for its education and events. 

The GovCon Council meets twice a year to discuss issues of interest to participating members and to brainstorm and discuss content topics for the Chamber’s GovCon event series. This year the Council has formed task forces to help plan the content for each event in the GovCon event series including the GovCon CEO Symposium, Women at the Top of GovCon, a cybersecurity event, and a networking happy hour. The work of the GovCon Council does not include the Greater Washington Government Contracting Awards. Participation in the GovCon Council is open to any interested member of the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce.
