About Us

Your Regional Leader for Public, Private & Civic Engagement

Greater Washington is a dynamic and complex region with a quick-moving and always-evolving business environment. The Board of Trade, founded in 1889, is the region’s premier non-partisan business organization representing industry, nonprofits, universities and government agencies in the District of Columbia, suburban Maryland, and Northern Virginia. We focus on inclusive economic growth, improving the business climate and enhancing the region’s economic competitiveness.

For Our Members, The Board of Trade is…

  • A policy voice that represents business at the city, regional, state, and federal levels.
  • A convener and coalition-builder around issues we all care about, from transportation to talent to the business environment.
  • A platform for leadership and organizational benefit, providing regional insights and all the tools businesses need to grow, from high-quality networking and best-of class practices to proprietary business content.
  • A community partner and champion for projects, initiatives, and people who make our region globally competitive and a great place to live and work
