Policy Committee to Develop New Tax, Legal Positions for Legislative Agenda 
Now is a great time to join the Northern Virginia Chamber’s Policy Committee. The General Assembly established a new Joint Subcommittee on Tax Policy during session this year and the Chamber will need to bolster its long-standing positions in support of a fair and affordable tax system in the Commonwealth. The Chamber will also need to renew its support for a business-friendly legal environment in Virginia in light of continued pressure from policymakers to erode it. This will be a busy year for the Policy Committee and we need your engagement! Please contact our Vice President of Government Affairs Clayton Medford at if you’d like to weigh in on these topics or learn more about the Policy Committee.
