The Chamber ALX wants to turn things up a notch and increase their influence in Alexandria. That’s according to new Chamber Board Chair Angela Hartley, who thanked members for their support at the annual Chair’s Gala on Tuesday night (April 19).
“We want to make sure that the Chamber really is representing all parts of this city, all types of businesses,” Hartley said. “And by the way, nonprofits are businesses, too. Then we represent all of the people that live in the city, all of the age groups, all the diversity that we have here.”
The event was held at The National Industries For The Blind (3000 Potomac Avenue), where Hartley is the executive vice president and chief program officer. The Chamber also conducts a number of events throughout the year, including the 40 Under 40, the Valor Awards for first responders, and networking mixers.
Hartley was named chair in January, has been on the Chamber board for six years, and her term as chair expires at the end of the year.
