2018 will be an historic year for the Loudoun Chamber, as we celebrated the 50th Anniversary of this great organization and its positive impact on the Loudoun community. The celebration took place at The National, when Loudoun’s top business and community leaders gathered to celebrate the leadership of our 2017 Board Chair Tina Johnson at the 50th Anniversary Gala & Annual Meeting.
The Loudoun Chamber welcomed the new Board Chair for 2018, Mitch Sproul of Toth Financial Advisory Corporation, along with the entire Board of Directors at this inaugural event in the year-long series of celebrations marking the Loudoun Chamber’s 50th Anniversary.
Now in its fifth year, the Community Leadership Awards honor members of the Loudoun business community that demonstrate exemplary community leadership in ways that positively impact the quality of life for the citizens of our County. The top honorees in the Community Leadership Awards’ five categories will be able to grant $1,000 to the one nonprofit of their choice, thanks to the generosity of the Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties.
