Welcome to Virginia's Growth Alliance!
As Executive Director of VGA, I'd like to welcome you to our website and our region!
We’re setting a course here in Southern Virginia. Over the past two years, regional organizations, local leaders, economic development specialists and the community have investigated new approaches to creating jobs and strengthening the identity of our region. There’s a lot here to capitalize on, and we’re just getting started.
We'll be using this blog to highlight achievements, share success stories, and keep you informed on developments in the region. We're also in the process of redesigning our website to add more useful features and make it more user-friendly.
In 2014 we'll be partnering with Glerin Business Resources to present a series of social media and marketing workshops that you won't want to miss! Glerin, a design and marketing firm headquartered in Southern Virginia for over 12 years and with offices in Atlanta, Baltimore, and Richmond, specializes in helping small businesses compete more effectively both locally and globally.
If you're interested in locating a business in an area that has great access to interstates and major highways, a trained workforce, and a low cost of living, please email me so I can introduce you to this great region of the state that Forbes says is the best state for business.
