DATE & TIME
The Gala is the highlight of the year for the business community and the DC Chamber. We bring together our region’s top business, political and philanthropic leaders for an evening celebrating business innovation, creativity and success. As we begin to resurface from the challenging past two years, we look forward to an evening filled with optimism and opportunity. This year, we recognize those businesses and business leaders who have reminded us that we’re all in this together. We celebrate this year’s theme – Our Businesses are Rooted in Community.
