State of the Fairfax County Economy - presented by Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D.

*includes breakfast buffet

The award-winning Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA) promotes Fairfax County as one of the world's best business locations. The FCEDA is an independent authority chartered by the Commonwealth of Virginia. A seven member board of Fairfax County business leaders oversees the work of the authority. Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., is the president and CEO of the FCEDA.

The FCEDA mission statement, adopted by the FCEDA Board on November 9, 2016, is "to promote the competitive advantages of Fairfax County and influence the growth of a diverse and innovative ecosystem that enhances the tax base, creates demand for commercial space, and supports an extraordinary and equitable quality of life across Fairfax County."

Our speaker - Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D.

Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., is the president and CEO of the Economic Development Authority in Fairfax County, Virginia, one of the largest office markets in the nation. He has been with the FCEDA since late 1983, during which time office space in the county grew from 32 million square feet to more than 116 million, and jobs in the county grew from 243,000 to almost 600,000. As a result, the real estate tax rate has decreased from $1.47 to $1.13.

Founded in 2007, the Washington Executives Association (WEA) was established to facilitate business growth among metropolitan executives through networking, cross marketing, and ongoing professional development.

The organization is comprised of top level executives and owners of small to medium-sized businesses, representative of a wide cross section of industries.

WEA regularly hosts high-profile speakers for professional development and to attract other business leaders during weekly networking sessions. Members benefit from the collective expertise and resources of the group, through offered referrals, industry experience, and business advice. Each session yields vital information and provides invaluable peer support. The meetings are engaging and enjoyable. Members and invited guests have a great time getting to know each otherís strengths, capabilities, and objectives.
