First year members

The GO Northern VA Council (Region 7) was officially launched in the spring of 2017.  The First Council was made up of 29 regional leaders who divided their terms into 1-year, 2-year, and 3-year terms.  A dynamic Executive Committee put in countless hours, along with their peers. This group of leaders successfully stood up a Council committed to using the GO Virginia Funding effectively to add to a workforce well prepared to fill the cybersecurity and IT jobs located in northern Virginia.  

We honor our first year members who have since left the council, and thank them for their dynamic input.
