Chamber Calendar of Events

The Chamber Year Runs July 1st through June 30th with
Networking activities generally suspended during July & August.

Chamber Networking is about building relationships with new business contacts, identifying potential new customers, while providing an opportunity to meet fellow members in a congenial relaxed setting.  Expand your professional address book along with your business base. 

The Chamber hosts regular Midday Marketing Receptions at the new chamber office.  Invitations are issued to small groups rotating through the chamber membership in order to offer you another opportunity to meet as many chamber members and business owners as possible over the course of the year.  Lasting only one hour, you can improve your contact list quickly and effectively while distributing your marketing materials directly to members.

The chamber also sponsors networking luncheons and arranges member sponsored evening Mixers.  


Midday Marketing Reception

As a chamber member, if you wish to host a MIXER (usually 4-6 pm) contact the chamber office.  This is an effective way to show off your facility, advertise your business, and entertain fellow chamber members on their way home from work.

A Christmas Carol

Though placed in 1930’s Midwest, there is nothing “depressing” about this new take on this classic tale of redemption.  St. Louis is mighty cold in December, especially when there’s not enough food to go around. Times are hard. People are out of work, lose their homes, their families, and many lose hope. A Shakespearean actor and his manager run out of gas, and the townsfolk agree to supply them with some if they tell them the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim. Hope is born as the town jumps in as Dickensian characters amid bluegrass music and the redemptive spirit inspired by this timeless tale. This depression-era adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic truly brings this story to life.

A Christmas Carol
By Charles Dickens, adapted by Rob Zapple
Dates: Dec. 7 – 16, 2018
Where: James Lee Community Center, 2855 Annandale Rd, Falls Church, VA
Tickets: $17
