Virginia Chamber Partnership with the Virginia Council of CEOs (VACEOs)

The Virginia Chamber of Commerce has formed a formal partnership with the Virginia Council of CEOs. The Virginia Council of CEOs is a non-profit association founded in 2000 to connect CEOs for peer mentoring and professional growth.

Through the partnership, active members of the Virginia Council of CEOs will be granted dual membership in the Virginia Chamber of Commerce. The two organizations will work closely together on future events and initiatives, including the Chamber’s update this year to its long-term economic plan, Blueprint Virginia 2025.

As reported by the Richmond Times Dispatch regarding the announcement of the partnership:

The Council of CEOs, a nonprofit association founded in 2000, has about 200 members who are chief executives of small- and mid-sized companies. More than 90 percent of its members are in the Richmond region.

“We’ve determined this is the right time to accelerate our growth,” said Neal Lappe, chief executive officer of WebStrategies Inc. and the 2017 chairman of the Council, during a luncheon meeting of the group on Wednesday at the University of Richmond’s Jepson Alumni Center.

The Council plans to start expanding its membership by establishing a CEO roundtable — a peer networking and discussion group — in Charlottesville before incrementally expanding into other parts of the state.
