Founded in 2003, the Democratic Business Council of Northern Virginia (“DemBiz”) provides opportunities for Democrats and like-minded Independents to meet and network with other professionals, as well as with local, state, and federal elected officials and candidates. Best known for its monthly Signature Breakfast Series events, DemBiz hosts speakers and programs of interest to the Democratic business community. These include breakfast events with Virginia’s top elected officials, business leaders, political operatives, journalists and academics. Programs have also included candidate forums, legislative updates and happy hours.
DemBiz also contributes to a separate Political Action Committee (the “DemBiz PAC”) to support the candidacies of business-friendly Democrats running for the Virginia Senate and House of Delegates between the western and southern borders of Loudoun County, Prince William County, and the Potomac River. DemBiz’s mission includes enhancing its members’ professional prospects, taking back the business message, and meaningfully impacting elections around Northern Virginia. DemBiz typically meets on the second Friday of every month from 7:30-9am.
