Annual “State of the” Series

State of the City and State of the County

The Roanoke Regional Chamber hosts a State of the City Address in the summer and a State of the County Address in the fall to give local leaders an opportunity to share important milestones that have been reached and plans for the future. These popular annual breakfast programs attract more than 200+ regional leaders and are presented by the Roanoke City Mayor and Roanoke County Board of Supervisors Chairman.

State of the Commonwealth

Produced by Old Dominion University’s Center for Economic Analysis and Policy, the State of the Commonwealth Report analyzes the Virginia economy and assesses its future progress. It includes chapters that focus on economic headwinds for Virginia, defense spending, Virginia’s airports, small businesses, finding efficiencies in local government services and trends in migration.
