Join the Most Powerful Voice of Local Business 

A fundamental component of the Hampton Roads Chamber’s mission is to advocate the views of the business community to our elected representatives at the state and local levels. In collaboration with our Public Policy Advisors, the Chamber staff is engrossed in information gathering and takes an active role in developing and promoting policy positions on critical issues affecting the business community. 

Your Hampton Roads Chamber is continuously fighting for you to set the conditions for your business to succeed. Meticulous tracking of business related issues and public policy agendas, along with continual discussions with municipal staff, elected officials, and the Hampton Roads delegation,  enables us to effectively advocate for and serve as the voice of the business community. 

As the leading business organization in the region, our business driven advocacy work for the past three years has saved employers an estimated $2.5 Billion. These savings average $2,700 per employee.
