We bring the community together to solve regional issues
The Chamber’s goal is to be a trusted business partner and an agent of change for our members and community. As a community leader, we regularly bring together regional chambers, institutions such as George Mason University, University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Northern Virginia Community College, regional economic development organizations, government agencies, and workforce boards to advocate for initiatives integral to our community’s ongoing economic health and growth.
We promote a diverse and inclusive business community
The diversity of our community is one of our greatest assets, offering opportunities to learn from one another and form personal connections that help guide lasting business growth. The Chamber actively works to make our business community a welcoming environment where people of all races and backgrounds can find support and success.
We advocate for 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.
The Chamber’s government advocacy efforts focus on state and local issues of importance to our membership, including: education and workforce development, transportation, taxes and regulations, energy, and healthcare. We work daily with regional and statewide business groups to help create an economic environment within which our member businesses can grow and their employees can thrive.
We cover a lot of business territory: all of Northern Virginia, in fact
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 engage members on timely topics and through peer-focused councils
Keeping members informed and providing opportunities for peer-to-peer engagement are part of the Chamber’s ongoing mission. We accomplish this through a variety of activities that range from expert-led, topical events to focused group councils. We honor our members’ achievements through our annual awards programs held throughout the year.
We attract community leaders and influential brands
The members of the Chamber have created a meaningful, powerful association that enriches our community and positively impacts our members’ businesses and their employees.
Our work has been rewarded by the ongoing support provided by members of all sizes and types, including major brands such as: Amazon Web Services, Verizon, American Heart Association, Bank of America, Nestlé, Capital One, INOVA, Kaiser Permanente, COX, Washington Gas, and many more.
