On December 1st, the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, co-sonsored by Richmond SHRM, will host the 8th Annual Virginia Economic Summit at the Williamsburg Lodge. This year’s event will be particularly noteworthy, as the Chamber will be presenting an update to their long-term statewide economic development plan, Blueprint Virginia 2025, to Virginia’s Governor-elect. Over the course of 2017, the Blueprint update has engaged over 6,000 business and community leaders to gather input on priorities for improving Virginia’s business climate.

Other program highlights include a November election recap by Dr. Bob Holsworth and an update on the National Rankings Initiative Study by VEDP and the Virginia Tech Pamplin School of Business.  We are once again expecting a sellout attendance of 700 business leaders from around the state and will be releasing additional details on the agenda within the next couple of weeks.
