A coalition of Northern Virginia chambers of commerce, along with other regional leaders, have formed a steering committee to develop the GO Virginia Regional Council.
The 13-member panel will identify members and establish structure for Regional Council, which will be responsible for proposing projects to compete for economic development funds available through the state’s new GO Virginia initiative.
GO Virginia is a bipartisan initiative adopted by the General Assembly and supported by Gov. Terry McAuliffe to encourage greater collaboration among localities, higher education and private sector partners on projects that create jobs and spur economic growth.
Matt McQueen, of Northrop Grumman, is chairman of the steering committee and Kerry Donley, of John Marshall Bank, is vice chairman.
