Kaiser Permanente has been a member of the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce for over a decade, as well as a Corporate Elite partner of the Chamber. Our work with the Chamber has always been integral to our commitment to supporting the business community in the region. Receiving the Chamber’s 2021 Nonprofit of the Year recognition as part of the Chamber’s Good Business Awards helped Kaiser Permanente to gain greater visibility in the business community for our work supporting the health of Northern Virginians. Further, our Chamber event sponsorships have also offered invaluable connections with niche audiences aligned with our mission and goals. 

For me as a regional business leader, the Chamber has kept me informed of regional business issues that impact Kaiser Permanente and our business partners. Serving on the board has also helped me connect with an esteemed network of business partners and thought leaders.

I joined the Chamber in order keep updated on the issues that effect this region, both from an economical and personal sense. What I received was so much more! Through the Chamber's events and experiences, I've had wonderful opportunities to meet likeminded business leaders and individuals. They're also a great learning opportunity on what is going on with business in NOVA!
