In the 90’s, the Chamber was instrumental in standing up many community programs, including Crime Stoppers, the Small Business Development Center, Partners in Education, as well as Regional Renaissance

In 1993, the City of Lynchburg contracted with the Chamber to manage the Visitor Center.

In 2004, the Chamber merged with Sports Capital of Virginia, stabilizing the VA 10-Miler race as an organization at the time. Also after years of fundraising efforts, the Chamber presented checks to the City of Lynchburg and Lynchburg Hillcats for $407,000 for improvements to City Stadium.

In 2000, the Chamber's TransDominion Express committee secured $9.3 million from the General Assembly to begin statewide passenger rail service

In 2017, after purchasing the James River Conference Center, the Alliance moved into our new headquarters

In 2016, the Lynchburg Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Region 2000 Business and Economic Alliance combined to form the Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance known today.

In 2022, the Alliance completed the master redevelopment plan for the Central Virginia Training Center. A massive undertaking hoping to bring a bright future to the site in Amherst County. The Alliance also successfully lobbied for the defeasement of $25 million worth of bonds on the property.
