This premier event for the business community is a luncheon with legislators, state government officials, and the most influential business people in Hampton Roads. The Chamber will honor its outgoing 2015 volunteer leadership and recognize its incoming 2016 volunteer leaders.
This year's keynote speaker will be Former Virginia Governor L. Douglas Wilder. Governor Wilder was the first African-American to be elected as Governor of Virginia, serving as the 66th Governor of Virginia from 1990-1994. When earlier elected as Lieutenant Governor, he was the first African American elected to statewide office in Virginia. His more recent political office was Mayor of Richmond, VA, which he held from 2005 to 2009.
Governor Wilder, always outspoken and insightful, will be discussing the economic and political climate in Virginia. He will also be signing his book, "Son of Virginia: A Life in America's Political Arena" after the event.
