About HRGCC

Hampton Roads Global Commerce Council

The Hampton Roads Global Commerce Council (HRGCC), previously known as the Hampton Roads Foreign Commerce Club, is a non-profit organization founded in Hampton Roads in the early 1950s by local business leaders who were engaged in international commerce.

HRGCC is dedicated to promoting the international commerce of the United States in general, and that of the port of Hampton Roads in particular. The Council’s primary mission is to bring together and serve the industries in Hampton Roads associated with national and international commerce, particularly the trucking, shipping, rail and air transport industries, through education, information-sharing, and networking opportunities. The Council meets these goals through a variety of breakfast, luncheon, and after-work meetings where members and guests have an opportunity to hear from and meet political, industry, and community leaders, as well as the Annual “State of the Port” Address given in January by the President of Virginia International Terminals, scholarships, and the Commerce Builder Award.
