Chamber Mission

The Virginia Peninsula Chamber of Commerce is a business development organization and we serve the cities of Hampton, Newport News and Poquoson; and the counties of James City and York. The chamber is a not-for-profit, non-partisan and non-sectarian organization with a mission to “connect businesses with opportunity.” Its mission is accomplished through facilitation, advocacy, communication and education, which is built on a foundation of integrity, relevance, involvement and sustainability.

Facilitation – Creates opportunities for businesses and individuals to come together in unique ways. The Peninsula has a diverse business community, and at the chamber we take pride in facilitating connections and creating new opportunities for the Peninsula business community.

Advocacy – The chamber is the champion of the free enterprise economic system, and we advocate for the business point of view. Through its board of directors, programs, committees and task forces, the Virginia Peninsula Chamber represents the collective voice of Peninsula businesses. All our efforts are designed to advocate and support the economic and business interests of the Virginia Peninsula and the surrounding region.

Communication – Keeping its members and the Peninsula informed are integral toward increasing involvement. Diversifying our communication outlets, and incorporating modern tools to communicate, allows us to reach diverse audiences keeping them informed and involved.

Education – Small businesses employ half of the country’s workforce, create two of every three new jobs, and generate a majority of American innovations. The chamber’s role is to increase the number of successful small businesses. The chamber collaborates with many organizations, such as: SCORE, Virginia Business Development Association, the Procurement Technical Assistance Center to provide professional and onsite counseling services. The chamber continuously provides affordable and relevant educational opportunities for the Peninsula business community.
