The Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce was honored to host former Governor L. Douglas Wilder at our 2015 Annual Meeting. His words, insights, and life story of selfless leadership were inspirational to all in attendance. We were also delighted to be awarded at the meeting a Four Star Accreditation from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, an accomplishment only obtained by less than 3% of all chambers in the nation. We welcomed 620 members and guests to celebrate a successful 2015 and to set the stage for a stellar 2016.
The Hampton Roads Chamber was excited to host Courtney Lynch as the speaker for the first event in the Professional Women's Leadership Series. Courtney gave a dynamic and engaging presentation on what it means to have SPARK and how to utilize that to become an influential and impact leader.
