How to set a positive tone for workplace relationships, avoid harassing behaviors, and create a safe, productive culture for your business.
Creating a safe and productive workplace that’s free from harassment is important for every business – in fact, it’s the law. However, it can prove to be particularly challenging for small business owners.
Join the Loudoun Chamber Small Business Committee to learn about harassment identification and prevention, learn good practices to better manage potential harassment situations, and learn how to build a more compliant, productive workplace by:
• Identifying behaviors that contribute to harassment and a hostile work environment
• Mitigating and preventing harassment through employee awareness and training
• Addressing difficult conversations relating to harassment
• Avoiding costly mistakes in your policies and actions when addressing workplace harassment

Annual Real Estate Event
While Loudoun outperforms other Virginia counties on most economic measures, we still face many challenges to our future prosperity. Whether it’s our investment in Metro, a housing affordability crisis or attracting a millennial workforce, Loudoun’s challenges demand effective solutions.
On Monday, August 19, 2019, we hosted our 37th Annual Golf Classic event at the award-winning Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf course, The Club at Creighton Farms. This course is one of the finest on the Eastern Seaboard — is nothing short of spectacular. This event has been Loudoun County’s Premier business golf tournament for three decades.
For the past 8 years, this casual, networking tournament pairs you and a partner against a field of over 30 two-man teams in a progressive four month tournament. Designed with the busy professional in mind, each event consists of a 9-hole round after work, followed by a short networking reception to get you home in time to put the kids to bed. The team with the lowest cumulative score after four events is the champion. The 2019 Winners were Tom Reed and Greg Wells. Congratulations! Stay tuned for the 2020 Golf Tour dates.
