PolicyMaker Series: 2021 House of Delegates Candidates Forum
The last two years has seen sweeping change across Virginia as, for the first time in decades, the House of Delegates, Senate, and Governor’s Office all represents a single party. Many pieces of legislation that will directly affect their business passed quickly, such as an increase to minimum wage, while other more extreme bills, like the attempt to repeal Virginia’s status as a Right – To – Work state were successfully defeated. Immediately following the fast-paced, pre-pandemic 2020 Session, the 2021 Session focused more on the critical needs of business and our workforce plays in creating healthy, stable, and prosperous communities for the citizens of the Commonwealth in the midst of the pandemic.
It’s now more important than ever to actively engage with our local representatives in Richmond and ensure that the business case for every issue is being heard and that the impact of pro-business legislation is being seen. Join us for this unique take on a typical candidate forum as attendees will have the opportunity to engage the candidates directly in a series of small roundtable sessions focused on the Loudoun Chamber’s 2021 Public Policy Priorities.
NOTE: The Loudoun Chamber Board of Directors has adopted a COVID-19 vaccine requirement in order to attend any in-person Chamber meetings or events. To read the full policy, click here.
