Three Chambers of Commerce representing minority-owned businesses in Fairfax met in Tysons yesterday (Wednesday) to sign an agreement of closer collaboration.
The Asian American Chamber of Commerce, Northern Virginia Black Chamber of Commerce, and Virginia Hispanic Chamber comprise a partnership called the Multicultural Chambers Alliance (MCCA). The organization has been in existence for five years, but yesterday signed an memorandum of understanding with a recommitment to the organization with more extensive collaboration details.
The MCCA agreed that each of the chambers will collaborate with the others on organizing, presenting and hosting joint events. The three groups will also work closer to exchange information on economic, legislative and political matters.
The event was hosted by the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA) at its Tysons headquarters (8300 Boone Blvd).
“The coming together of the three chambers involved represents all that America and this community stand for,” said Gerald L. Gordon, president and CEO of the FCEDA, in a press release. “The collaboration and collegiality of these three cultural and racial business groups represents enormous opportunity for its members and for the business community at large as they further bring their component companies into the economic mainstream.”

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
