The last few months have been extremely busy for the National Capital Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth.

Our annual Strategic Growth Conference was a phenomenal success, with an incredible number of attendees, some very informational breakout sessions, and some famous speakers from across the business and political landscape, including Tom Ridge, John Sununu, and Andy Card.

Then, just two weeks ago, we awarded our Corporate Growth Awards to the enterprises and executives that have made the biggest impact in the Washington, D.C., northern Virginia, and southern Maryland business market by executing remarkable corporate growth strategies and successfully closing major business transactions.

ACG National Capital President Braun Jones accepts Chapter of the Year award at InterGrowth.

Now, ACG National Capital Chapter has received an incredible honor. The Association for Corporate Growth has named our chapter the “2010 ACG Chapter of the Year” for overall achievement and excellence in membership, growth, and programs. We are deeply honored with this global recognition and on behalf of everyone at ACG, we would like to thank all of our members, sponsors, volunteers, and professional staff whose dedication to ACG has helped make it a successful organization. 

One of the things that contributes to ACG National Capital Chapter’s success is the deep knowledge and broad experience of its membership. Members share their knowledge and best practices through our events and networking. There are a few upcoming events that ACG National Capital Members may want to take advantage of, including:
