With D.C.’s Metro rail scheduled to arrive in summer 2020, there has never been a better time to help shape Loudoun’s economic future. Loudoun County is seeking candidates to serve on the Economic Development Advisory Commission, a group of business leaders charged with advising the Board of Supervisors on items impacting the economic environment.

Members of the Loudoun business community who are interested in volunteering their time and expertise to promote the economic growth of the county should submit an application online no later than Friday, September 13, 2019.

Although not a requirement to serve, EDAC seeks applicants with expertise and experience in the following fields:

  • transportation/mass transit;
  • government contracting;
  • aviation/transportation/logistics;
  • commercial real estate.

In 2018, Loudoun was named Virginia’s top county for business growth for the third year in a row, according to SmartAsset. With the board’s adoption of the county’s new Comprehensive Plan, this is a crucial time to guide its implementation for Loudoun’s 12,000-plus businesses.

“EDAC plays an important role in framing the conversation around economic development in Loudoun County. In recent years, the commission has helped shape public policy on topics including workforce housing, regional transportation, and the nighttime economy,” explained Economic Development Executive Director Buddy Rizer.

“We’re always looking for fresh perspectives on how to increase the strength and diversity of our #LoudounPossible economy.”

Commission members may serve two three-year terms, meeting six times per year, every other month starting in January. The meetings are free and open to the public; interested parties can attend the next meeting on September 6 at 8:15 a.m. at the LCPS Administration Building in Ashburn.

EDAC leadership will review applicants and recommend nominees to the Board of Supervisors for appointment. The commission’s members, bylaws, agendas and other documents are available at biz.loudoun.gov.

    Good afternoon!

    I wanted to provide two pieces of feedback:
    1) the application link does not appear to be working,
    2) 10/13/2019 is a Sunday – not a Friday.

    Kind regards,
    JMP
