Why engage with ChamberWomen?

“I have been a passport member for about 4 years but never fully took advantage of all the program had to offer. It’s only when I started attending more events, seeing more of the same people, and then attending the ‘passport members only’ socials did my relationships with the other fantastic professional ladies of ChamberWomen & RVA begin to take off.  I’ve developed friendships and a network of people that are so talented in various areas that my passport membership has become invaluable”

Sara Johnson, Vice President & Private Advisor
