The Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce’s annual State of the City Series is the premier annual forum for interaction among each of the city's business, civic and community leaders. Each address is held in the featured city and is given by the mayor of that city. In 2014, a record-breaking 3,927 people attended the five-part series to learn about key business development initiatives, municipal progress updates and opportunities in the cities where they live and work.
The series will kick off with the Norfolk State of the City address on February 20 at noon at the Norfolk Waterside Marriott. The Honorable Paul D. Fraim will address challenges and opportunities and provide a glimpse into the City's future. Nearly 1,000 of the regions business, political and community leaders are expected to be in attendance.
The State of the City Series connects the community and provides valuable insight on issues impacting businesses and the region. They have become the preferred forum for elected officials and mayors to communicate with their constituents and are often sold out events.
