"

From the chambers of local government, to the halls of the General Assembly, to the corridors of Congress, NVC is the authoritative, timely, and effective  voice of our region's business community.​ As a NVC member for 30 years, I've observed, at  very close range, the success of its Richmond agenda, touching on issues of direct relevance to every NVC member.  From taking the lead role in achieving business privilege occupational license (BPOL) tax reform to championing transportation funding for critically-needed projects, to a host of others, the NVC's vision is seen and its voice is heard."

We bridge the gap between businesses and elected officials.

Ensuring that Northern Virginia has a voice in the legislative process, NVC established the Northern Virginia Business Political Action Committee (NOVABIZPAC) in 2002 to support Virginia legislators and policymakers who champion a pro-business agenda. NOVABIZPAC’s mission is to utilize the resources of the regional business community to ensure the future successes of key business issues.

One of the most influential PACs in the Commonwealth of Virginia, NOVABIZPAC uses NVC’s legislative agenda as its guide as to which candidates to support in Northern Virginia and across the state.

NOVABIZPAC is administered by a Board of Trustees composed exclusively of members of the NVC. The Board is comprised of business leaders familiar with the regional business community’s agenda and top priorities. NOVABIZPAC also receives strategic advice and oversight from the NVC Board of Directors. NOVABIZPAC meets regularly throughout the year, interviewing and evaluating candidates and elected officials.

NOVABIZPAC allows the Northern Virginia Regional business community to collectively organize its political action to elect candidates who share the NVC’s goal of job creation and a business-friendly economic climate.

The success of NOVABIZPAC is not possible without the effective participation of the Northern Virginia business community in the political process and the financial support of NVC members. Member contributions enable NOVABIZPAC to support worthy candidates and ensure the NVC has a voice in the policy and legislative process.
