The 2017 Chairman of the Board rolled out a year-long plan of action, Tomorrow’s Alexandria — an initiative to engage business owners, professionals, and citizens in a conversation about our city of tomorrow. We continue our focus on Tomorrow’s Alexandria in 2018 and move the conversations forward by Working Together for the future of our great city.
Working Together will engage and celebrate the diversity of our city — its geography, leadership, and business community. All areas of our city will come together to Celebrate Alexandria at the Jan. 18 Chairman’s Reception at Alexandria Renew Enterprises. Together we will celebrate the people, places, and things that make Alexandria such a wonderful place to do business.
The initiative continues in 2018 by showcasing our vibrant and emerging leaders in a Young Professionals Network. The Chamber will create a path to success for our future city leaders to work together and drive forward a profitable and growing business community.
The Chamber will also focus on Building Bridges among our business community that makes our city so robust and lively. Working Together with the City Government, Alexandria Economic Development Partnership, Small Business Development Center, and the Neighborhood Business Associations, we will create a vibrant business hub as the future of our city.
It is my pleasure to lead this initiative, and I hope you will join me in working together in 2018!
