Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce plans to change its name
The Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce is getting a new name. Beginning in January, it will be called the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce.
The organization said the move was the result of a call by business and political leaders for a unified business voice for the region.
It also said the new name more accurately reflects the role the Fairfax Chamber already is playing.
“The rebranding and restructuring will allow us to better serve and increase our value to our members, stakeholders and business community,” Mitchell D. Weintraub, a partner in Cordia Partners and chairman of the Fairfax Chamber, said in a statement.
He said the renamed organization would “seek to complement, not compete with the other chambers. This is about strengthening and unifying the regional business voice region.”
