Capitol Hill:

A New Look for CHAMPS, Capitol Hill’s Chamber of Commerce

unnamedCHAMPS’ recent annual meeting ushered in an exciting new fiscal year for the organization.  The garden event was sponsored by member organization Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW) and featured fresh food from local caterers DC Vegan and Tres Creole.
Members, local business owners, and neighborhood supporters gathered to socialize, then vote and approve the 2016-17 CHAMPS Board of Directors (listed below).  The incoming Board represents a cross section of Capitol Hill businesses that will push the organization forward.
Incoming CHAMPS President Brad Johnson spoke of his and the Board’s commitment to CHAMPS’ mission to support and grow Capitol Hill businesses (read it here).  With the launch of a fresh logo and new website, the nine-member working board is moving the organization to respond effectively to the challenges and opportunities of a rapidly changing business landscape.
The plans for the coming year include concentrated advocacy efforts for our members. We will do so by continuing to bring in local officials for round table meetings, distributing education briefs, and filing testimony before D.C. City Council on issues that affect CHAMPS members. Have an issue? Reach out!
CHAMPS has streamlined events to make connecting with local business owners and community supporters easier on busy schedules.  CHAMPS members will host quarterly networking gatherings.  Phil Guire and Compass Realty will host the next quarterly event onSeptember 29, 2016.
CHAMPS values its members and will continue to promote Capitol Hill  businesses and services through its website, newsletters, social media, and old-fashioned word-of-mouth referrals.
Welcome to a new turn with CHAMPS!
