Loudoun Chamber campaign adds 177 new businesses

The Loudoun County Chamber added 177 new members in its three-day #UniteLoudoun Campaign, bringing to 1,300 the number of businesses in the county that are members.

The Chamber's #UniteLoudoun Campaign was designed to build and sustain the economic climate and quality of life in Loudoun by strengthening the leading network of businesses and community leaders that are engaged through the chamber.

More than 250 local business, community and government leaders participated in #UniteLoudoun by helping to spread the message of the chamber’s success in helping local businesses prosper while working to create a world class community here in Loudoun.

“With the success of the #UniteLoudoun Campaign, the Loudoun business community demonstrated its commitment to pull together and work together to strengthen our collective voice on the issues that make Loudoun our nation’s finest community to live, work, grow a business and raise a family,” said Chamber President & CEO Tony Howard.

“I am deeply grateful to each of the 250 business and community leaders that participated in the #UniteLoudoun Campaign. Their hard work, enthusiasm and strong belief in the Loudoun Chamber’s ability to make a positive impact on our community was essential not only to the success of this Campaign, but to the Chamber’s efforts to strengthen the health and vitality of our Loudoun community, for the benefit of all our citizens,” Howard added.

To help execute the #UniteLoudoun Campaign, the Loudoun County Chamber hired Membership180, a recruitment and engagement consulting firm, based in Greenville, S.C.

“We work with Chambers of Commerce across the nation and internationally, and rarely have we ever seen a local business community rally behind the cause of strengthening their Chamber and its efforts to improve the quality of life in their community like we witnessed in Loudoun County,” said Jay Handler, co-founder of Membership180. “This is a special community, led by a world-class Chamber of Commerce, and we are proud to have had the opportunity to work here.”

There are an estimated 10,000 businesses in Loudoun County. Local chambers typically represent from 15 percent to 25 percent of businesses within their borders, according to chamber officials.
