    When: Fourth Wednesday of the month, 8:00 am

    The Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce endeavors to ensure diversity, equity and inclusion is an integral part of all aspects of the Chamber’s operations and strategic initiatives to build and sustain an equitable business environment in the Chesterfield region. As part of this charge, the Chamber works continually to allow every possible advantage for economic parity and prosperity.

    The Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce was created by a group of committed and passionate business owners who wanted to ensure area businesses had representation within the county government. As Chesterfield County became one of the fastest growing counties in the nation, populations swelled and demands for high-quality community services increased. County government began prioritizing initiatives and improvements, and the Chesterfield Chamber became the advocate for business. Today, the Chamber works hand-in-hand with the Board of Supervisors and county administration to ensure all aspects of our county prosper.

    The Chesterfield Chamber advocacy reach provides input to Virginia’s State Senators and Delegates with an annual legislative agenda for the General Assembly. 

    To engage in advocacy efforts check out the Government Affairs Committee where members maintain relationships with elected officials and government agencies.  They also educate legislators on issues of importance to membership, craft and communicate pro-business policy positions, and host an annual legislative reception.  You do not have to participate on the committee to share your ideas and concerns.  Email Program Manager, Ian Ginger on what is important to your business and she will bring them to the committee on your behalf – ian@chesterfieldchamber.com
