NVTC Signs On to Support GO Virginia Campaign to Promote Growth and Opportunity in the Commonwealth
Last week, NVTC announced its support for Go Virginia, a campaign initiated by the Virginia Business Higher Education Council (VBHEC) and the Council on Virginia’s Future to foster private sector growth and job creation through state incentives for regional collaboration by business, education, and government.
GO Virginia was launched on July 28 in a series of events throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. NVTC Vice President of Policy Josh Levi attended the Richmond news conference along with business leaders, senior state and local officials, education leaders, and representatives of business and economic development organizations. The event included remarks from Gov. Terry McAuliffe, as well as NVTC Board members Tom Farrell, chairman, president, and chief executive officer of Dominion Resources, and Teresa Sullivan, president of the University of Virginia.
Bipartisan and business-led, the GO Virginia coalition favors state incentives to encourage collaboration among business, education, and government in each region, providing a framework for implementation of the private sector-focused strategies of leading business organizations and political leaders in both parties. The coalition believes the state can incentivize private-sector growth in the following areas:
“NVTC is pleased to support GO Virginia and its mission of bringing together regional organizations and leaders to drive economic growth and private sector job creation,” said NVTC President and CEO Bobbie Kilberg. “We look forward to working with the policy and business leaders of Northern Virginia to promote and incentivize innovation, investment, improvement, invention and infrastructure in our community.”
