The Valley Business Today: Hob Nob in the Valley 2020
22 July 2020
We pre-recorded today’s conversation via Zoom to talk about advocacy and get details for Hob Nob in the Valley 2020. We chatted with Cynthia Schneider, CEO, Charles Daniels, Board Member and Public Policy chair, and Danita Roble, Director of events for the Top of Virginia Regional Chamber. will be speaking about advocacy tomorrow and a little about Hob Nob in the Valley 2020.
One of the missions the Chamber has is to inform members about bills to watch in the Senate and Congress that may affect business; and advocate a pro-business agenda to elected officials at every level. Cynthia & Charles explained that this is just as important now as ever. We talked about the amplification of voice from multiple business through the chamber versus a single voice/business owner.
Danita joined us for the second half of our conversation to give us detail on Hob Nob in the Valley 2020. It will be held vitually on Thursday, September 24, 2020 at 6pm with a ticket price of $10. Danita explained that many of the aspects of previous Hob Nob’s will remain: the ability to interact with elected (& campaigning) officials, the straw vote, as well as networking. She is also currently working with local restaurants to offer special deals for food so that attendees can eat local while participating in the event from the comfort of their computer screen.
