The State of the Port Luncheon features a speech by Stephen Edwards, the Port of Virginia’s CEO and Executive Director, as he shares his perspectives on the previous year and the opportunities that await in the coming year.

The Commerce Builder Award is presented during the luncheon to a deserving professional that has significantly influenced the growth of commerce and trade in Virginia.
