virginiaThe Virginia Chamber of Commerce announced a formal partnership with the Virginia Council of CEOs. The Virginia Chamber of Commerce is the largest business association in Virginia, with more than 26,000 member companies. The Virginia Council of CEOs is a non-profit association founded in 2000 to connect CEOs for peer mentoring and professional growth.

Through the partnership, active members of the Virginia Council of CEOs will be granted dual membership in the Virginia Chamber of Commerce.

“We look forward to working with the Virginia Council of CEOs in this new partnership,” said Barry DuVal, president and CEO of the Virginia Chamber of Commerce. “The strategic plan adopted by our board last year called for expanding collaboration efforts with other business associations, and the fine work of the Virginia Council of CEOs in providing a platform for peer-to-peer CEO mentoring will complement the Chamber’s existing services. Our strength as the voice of Virginia business relies on engaging a broad cross-section of Virginia business leaders, and we welcome these CEOs as new members of the Virginia Chamber.”

“The Virginia Council of CEOs gives business leaders in Central Virginia an informal board of directors comprised of peers, dedicated to your success,” said Scot McRoberts, executive director of the council. “This partnership with the Virginia Chamber will provide a tremendous value for our current members and help us begin to form new CEO Roundtables in other parts of the Commonwealth.”
