Northern Virginia Building Industry Association 2021 Industry Impact Report

The Fauquier Chapter star ted out the year with a bang, developing goals to work with Fauquier County staff to develop a better process for fast tracking specific projects throughout the county through expedited reviews, become more of an advocate for the Town of Warrenton, and help membership grow within NVBIA and the Chapter. Members also established several committees within the Chapter to facilitate the business of the Fauquier Chapter : Membership, Economic Development, Planning Commission,Water and Sanitation Commission, Special Events, and Town of Warrenton. Each Chapter meeting now ends with a roundtable discussion of that month’s current issues and potential solutions and, as the year progressed, many of the chapter meetings were held in person—a welcome change after more than a year of vir tual meetings. Members also gathered for a Chapter Spring Mixer at Powers Farm & Brewery, with the Graze to Griddle Food Truck offering the best in casual dining. A beautiful afternoon allowed a large group of members to enjoy networking and camaraderie, as well as meet and chat with elected officials who took time out of busy schedules to join members at the event.The combination of Powers Brewery and the Graze to Griddle Food Truck was so good, in fact, that Fauquier’s first event of the season in 2022 will see the group return to the venue for another round of networking and fun!
