Region Seven includes the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, and Prince William; and the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas, and Manassas Park.


REGIONAL COUNCIL

The Regional Council is a certified entity by the State Board that will propose projects and ensure accountability for the use of funds used to support projects endorsed by the Council. The intent of the regional structure is to provide an incentive for regions to collaborate in order to diversify the economy and create high paying jobs in the region.    

Regional Councils are business led and include individuals from a variety of sectors; education, government, civic or community leaders, economic and workforce development professionals, local government officials, regional planning entities and nonprofits.  

The Region Seven Council is currently led by Chair Tom Rust and Vice Chair Sharon Virts and includes the following 24 additional council members: Sid Banerjee, Scott Brabrand, Ralph Buona, Aneesh Chorpra, Laurie DiRocco, Eileen Ellsworth, John Foust, Anup Ghosh, Tom Gibson, David Guernsey, Nicholas Jordan, Bobbie Kilberg, Greg Leisch, Paul Liberty, Matt McQueen, Marty Nohe, Carolyn Parent, Rick Pearson, Scott Ralls, Todd Rowley, Jen Siciliano, Danny Vargas, John Wood and Todd Yeatts.

SUPPORT ORGANIZATION

A regional council must be affiliated with or supported by a new or existing organization whose purposes and competencies include collaborative planning, economic development or workforce activities within the region. Region Seven is being supported by Martha Marshall in the interim until they finalize their support organization. The purpose of the support organization is to provide fiduciary oversight and administrative services for the activities funded by monies received from Virginia Growth and Opportunity Fund (VGOF). The support organization operates with the advice and consent of the regional council.
