Program

In 2018, Northern Virginia landed the two largest economic development projects in a generation. As both of these take shape, what is next on the horizon for Northern Virginia and the rest of the Commonwealth of Virginia? On July 15, NAIOP Northern Virginia is hosting a Lunch with Stephen Moret, President and CEO of the Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP). The Partnership's mission is to encourage, stimulate, and support development and expansion of the Commonwealth's economy. To accomplish these objectives, the Partnership focuses on business recruitment, expansion, and international trade.

As we exit the COVID-19 economy, economic development continues to be the number one priority for the state. Business investment and job creation are critical over the next 12-18 months. How are different portions of Virginia stacking up and what is in store for Northern Virginia? Come learn more about the companies that are headed to Virginia, the types of industries that the Governor is pursuing, and what efforts the Governor and the VEDP are making to enhance economic development.

As always, our Lunch with programs are for NAIOP members only.

He is regarded nationally as a strategic and collaborative solutions-oriented leader who is committed to providing opportunities for students of all backgrounds. Prior to joining Mason, Washington was the dean of the Henry Samueli School of Engineering at the University of California, Irvine (UCI). In his seven years at UCI, Washington expanded undergraduate enrollment in the engineering school by 1,100 students and graduate enrollment by more than 200. Washington was also responsible for recruiting and hiring one of the most diverse engineering faculty cohorts in the country, with more than 40 percent of his 60 hires being women or from underrepresented groups. In addition, he raised more than $100 million in public and private philanthropy for the engineering school, including more than $15.5 million in gifts targeted to reach more diverse student populations.

George Mason University is the largest public university in Virginia with campuses in Fairfax, Arlington, Prince William and Korea.
