All its efforts are designed to advocate and support the economic and business interests of the Virginia Peninsula and the surrounding region.
Communicate- Keeping members and the Peninsula informed are integral in increasing involvement. Diversifying our communication outlets allow for us to reach diverse audiences. We are consistently looking for ways to reach younger businesses and professionals, and facilitating collaborations between the younger and more experienced professionals.
