Board of Trade travels to Annapolis and Richmond for 2023 state legislative sessions

Our policy and advocacy efforts are crucial for the Greater Washington Board of Trade to make an impact on the region’s business community. And our member partnerships with G.S. Proctor & Associates, Inc. and McGuireWoods Consulting LLC have allowed us to engage with Maryland and Virginia legislators as both state legislative bodies returned to their respective state capitals to convene.

January has seen our expanded policy team, which includes the addition of Kyle McColgan, our new Vice President of Policy, traveling to Annapolis, Maryland, and Richmond, Virginia, for the start of state legislative sessions.

The mission for the Board of Trade when we travel to Annapolis and Richmond is to interact and listen to how certain legislative items can impact the business community and the goals of our 2022-2026 Strategic Vision.

More recent developments on our policy goals have included tackling issues impacting regional transportation growth, labor and workforce retention, technology investments, and inclusive economic development.

Our team and member partners G.S. Proctor & Associates, Inc. and McGuireWoods Consulting LLC will share more specific details about our policy and legislative stances as we continue to engage in meaningful conversations with legislators in the region.
