Blueprint Virginia: Update 2015

The webinar took place on Wednesday, June 17, 2015.

Initiated by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce in 2013 and led by the private sector, Blueprint Virginia was launched to create a long term economic development strategic plan. It was intended to serve as a guide to improve Virginia's regional and statewide competitiveness. Our speaker will provide an overview of how the Virginia Chamber of Commerce engaged stakeholders across the Commonwealth to identify common issues and create Blueprint Virginia. You will hear about how issues such as education, transportation, and energy were prioritized, and how opportunities for growth in key sectors were identified to keep Virginia competitive. You will also hear about the progress that has been made to date and the many elements that have come together to create a competitive platform for economic expansion.
