2023 marks the 99th year of operations for the Arlington Chamber of Commerce, an incredible asset and perennial keystone of Arlington’s business community. In addition to providing invaluable resources, programs, and advocacy benefitting its hundreds of member organizations - the Chamber has evolved over nearly a century to meet a diverse array of needs for people, businesses, and charitable organizations… all to strengthen the business and economic environment for those who work, live, and do business in Arlington.
Kate Bates is the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Arlington Chamber of Commerce. She began with the Chamber as a Member Services Manager in 2007, and has served as its CEO since 2014. She's been named to the 40 under 40 by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives, she serves on the board of the Virginia Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives, and she might very well be the biggest Caps fan we know.
