Indigo Landing's unique location on the Potomac River was an idyllic setting for the chamber's annual appreciation reception. More than 200 guests enjoyed the setting on the shores of the Potomac while enjoying cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.

The evening celebration was a great opportunity for new members to meet other members, and also a good time for existing members to reconnect.

The Alexandria chamber held the event to show their appreciation to new and veteran business and association members.  They appreciate that businesses resides in Alexandria and want to say, ‘thank you.’

Guests from City Council, the city's management leadership, the Alexandria Economic Development Partnership, the Small Business Development Center, Volunteer Alexandria and others came together for an evening of business-building and networking. 

On Saturday, chamber members gathered for the grand opening of Cafe Nicole.
