Meet the Chamber Staff
Meet Our Board of Directors

Dear Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce Members,

I am honored to serve as the President & CEO of the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce. It has been wonderful to meet countless members and leaders in our community and hear how our committed board of directors and staff can best serve you as the Voice of Business in Northern Virginia.  Thank you for the warm welcome over the past month.

With nearly 20 years in non-profit management and the private sector before that, I have a keen eye on ensuring that our members derive direct value from their membership.  Our mission is to provide a venue, a network, the content and the advocacy that accelerates your ability to grow your business.  I look forward to working together to strategically position the Chamber as a convener of thought leadership, a vehicle for engagement, and a leader in business advocacy within the region. I am excited to build on our successes and continuously look for new opportunities for growth.

The membership of the Northern Virginia Chamber is impressive, with small and large businesses, leading regional institutions, diverse non-profits, and companies from a multitude of industry sectors throughout the region. I encourage companies and business leaders to engage with us to experience the value that the Chamber has to offer to you and your business. Please attend an event, read our newsletters, volunteer, or connect with our Chamber staff. I encourage you to make the most of your membership.

I look forward to meeting you and working with you and your business to continue growing Northern Virginia and the greater region.

Julie Coons
