Business Council Cabinets

ChamberRVA’s Business Councils are governed by a cabinet of volunteers from the business community who lend time, talent, and resources to support its mission.

The Chair of each Cabinet also serves on the Business Council Forum Committee to ensure a regional and coordinated focus of programming across jurisdictions.

The Business Council Forum Chair for 2016-17 is Polly White.
