The Alexandria Chamber of Commerce celebrated Dave Millard as its 2020 board chairman at the annual Chairman’s Community Reception held Jan. 30 at the National Industries for the Blind headquarters in Potomac Yard.
“The Chamber has never been better,” said Millard, who takes over from 2019 board chair Charlotte Hall. “I am following three great chairs – Charlotte Hall, Gin Kinneman and Dak Hardwick – and everything is moving full steam ahead.”
The theme of the evening was “the soaring 2020s’ and Millard spoke of his plans for the year ahead.
“We’re going to focus on advocacy and improving collaboration and cooperation with other chambers,” Millard said. “And we will work closely with Arlington as we implement the Virginia Tech campus and Amazon. With Stephanie Beyer Kirby lined up as next year’s chairman, we have a great year ahead.”
