Fresh Logo, Updated Website, Renewed Mission

CHAMPS is excited to launch a fresh logo, updated website design, and renewed mission. 2015-16 has been a busy year behind the scenes for our nine-member Board of Directors. The logo and website re-design offered an opportunity to renew and rethink our intentions and direction as Capitol Hill’s Chamber of Commerce.

Key to bringing all the pieces together, the Board recently set aside time for a retreat. In between a few laughs and good food from an Eastern Market favorite, we discussed what became our renewed mission statement:

The Capitol Hill Association of Merchants and Professionals (CHAMPS) is your local Chamber of Commerce. We are a dynamic organization of Washington, D.C. business and community leaders dedicated to a strong economic environment for the Capitol Hill neighborhood. CHAMPS advocates, connects, and promotes Capitol Hill businesses.
