Official Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce

Brian Mitchell, Redskins Great, taught us to "give a damn" with his motivational speech about Teamwork! ... See MoreSee Less

View on Facebook

Our 3 Pillars

The Chamber’s foundation are supported by these three pillars.

Pillar 1 Commerce

The core to our 3 pillars is Commerce – our business.  Success is defined by more than a balance sheet, but a real Return On Investment is necessary.  This is where we formulate and foster key committees like Silver Line, Ignite for Growth, Banking, Hospitality, International (EMBARC), Education & Workforce, etc.

Pillar 2 Community

Community is our 2nd pillar and foundational to our people.  We need a safe, healthy, vibrant workforce that fosters a sense of place – a community – with a real work/life balance. Our not-for-profit, educators and arts are found here with committees for Friday Night Live, Herndon, Hispanic Business, Dulles Executive Women, Young Professionals, Health & Wellness, etc.

Pillar 3 Communication

The third pillar is our home for advocacy. We focus on working with our elected officials as we transmit our needs and concerns while receiving their solutions and plans to balance competing priorities. Our policy positions and memberships such as NVPC, NVTA, CfD, etc are found here.

Membership

We exist for our members. The members lead the organization through Chair/Vice Chair, Executive Committee, and Board of Directors. Our on-boarding, leadshare, orientations, mixers, and lunch & learns are found here.
