Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers is a Member of the Coastal Virginia Chamber of Commerce
Many businesses across Hampton Roads face economic loss and isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic. During this difficult time, the role of business organizations and chambers of commerce has become increasingly important.
Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers is a proud member of the Coastal Virginia Chamber of Commerce, an organization that supports local businesses through education and awareness initiatives. The organization has helped its members during the challenging shutdown associated with the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Coastal Virginia Chamber of Commerce plays an important role in putting businesses in contact with representatives at the local, state, and national levels. It develops a set of legislative priorities based on the needs of its members and the vision of the fast-growing Coastal Virginia region.
Its mission is to “promote public policy in our local city councils, boards of supervisors, school boards, and the Virginia General Assembly and the United States Congress through members’ direct contact of their elected officials,” the chamber states on its website.
The advocacy efforts are supported by cutting edge research by chamber staff and efforts to collect institutional knowledge possessed by current and former government officials and civic leaders.
The chamber was part of a recent event in April when lawmakers held a virtual town hall to help small businesses during the COVID-19 shutdown.
The event featured U.S. Congressman Bobby Scott, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Coastal Virginia, the Coastal Virginia Chamber, and several other legislators and former lawmakers. It included Sen. Jen Kiggans, Virginia Beach Councilwoman Jessica P. Abbott, and Randy Wright, a former Norfolk City Council member.
Membership of the Coastal Virginia Chamber of Commerce starts at $500 per year or $250 for businesses with three or fewer employees.
Chamber members include The Therapy Network, The Hurrah Players, Footers Sports Pub, TowneBank, and the Asian Business Association of Hampton Roads.
The charter level of membership includes two VIP tickets for chamber events and four regular tickets to all CVCC events. Members are given detailed business profiles on the chamber’s website and logo placement on web site news and data sections. Members can meet with chamber staff to discuss how the chamber can help them. Higher membership levels are also available.
All members are required to be licensed businesses, non-profits, or educational institutions that are in good standing with the Commonwealth of Virginia and their localities. Membership fees are waived for non-profits. The chamber also promotes the “return of civility” in public discourse. We encourage local businesses and non-profits to join this great organization.
