Louisa County Chamber 
The Chamber is excited to introduce Tracy Hale Clark as their next Executive Director. Ms. Hale Clark began leading the Chamber on February 1, 2019.

Prince William Chamber 
The Chamber has launched a new program with their Ambassador Committee - the Share the Love program. The program was developed to provide an avenue for members who can't always get away from their business and help them connect with their fellow members.  In addition, they wanted to remind their members that all of the employees of their organization are part of the Chamber Family, not just the Owner or marketing people. The Chamber identified the members who they felt needed a little "love," (keeping them a secret) then reached out to our members in the area, asking for donations that could be shared among the total number of employees these businesses represented (120). The response was overwhelming, and we filled multiple bags for each member business.

Top of Virginia Regional Chamber 
The Chamber is pleased to welcome Jonathan Horton as their new Business Development Specialist.  They are also pleased to announce that Cynthia Schneider has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer.
