Meets the second Tuesday of the month from 8:00 am – 9:00 am at the Tysons Chamber offices. Please check the Chamber calendar for any changes.
Established in early 2013, the council’s mission is to serve entrepreneurs and operators of emerging and established firms that supply products and services to federal, state and local governments by providing opportunities to enhance their knowledge, business relationships and develop business. The council strives to achieve a 50/50 participation presence between contractors and firms that provide services to contractors, assuring the Chamber delivers a program of events and activities that are not only relevant to a contracting firms operation but beneficial to program participants.
While the Council is in its infancy, its members strive towards a program of monthly activities that will give contractors the opportunities to share experiences and knowledge, meet and network with potential partners and have a forum where they can communicate with elected officials and directors of relevant agencies. The goal is to develop and sustain an environment where emerging firms can receive mentoring from experienced executives and offer established firms the new and innovative capabilities that make partnering relationships flourish.
This Council is a volunteer effort served by many intelligent, capable and talented people who realize the great benefit area contractors can receive by participating in relevant programs. We encourage new ideas for education, mentoring and partnering. Each member of the council has a voice, is given the opportunity develop their own event or program or leverage their knowledge base and network for the betterment of the community.
We welcome any Chamber member or prospective member to sit in on a meeting to learn more about our initiatives and programs. If you are interested in visiting or learning more, please contact the one of the Co-Chairs:
