Tysons Partnership Expands Programs and Reach

Tysons Partnership announced the formation of three teams to build engagement, share best practices and turbo-charge a vibrant community:

Sustainability Council will leverage the power of the Tysons community’s collective commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainable practices. Chair of the Sustainability Council is Todd House of WGL.

Community Responsibility Council will foster the collective engagement of the Tysons community in identifying and supporting Tysons community members in need. Chair of the CRC is Dan Mackesey of Womble Carlyle.

Emerging Leaders Council will recognize and empower the next generation of Tysons leaders, help them develop the skills to focus on current and future challenges in Tysons and cultivate a corps of nonprofit board directors. Chair of ELC is Jeff Tarae of Colliers International.

“The collective capacity of the Tysons community is stunning,” said Michael Caplin, president of the Tysons Partnership. “Our new programs enable fuller engagement in pursuit of the common good.”

The Tysons Partnership is the association of business and civic leaders in Tysons who are working with one another and county government to transform Tysons into a model 21st Century city: walkable; sustainable; rich with amenities and mixed-use, transit-oriented development. The Partnership also manages transportation services to expand commuter options and reduce dependence on cars.
