Virginia International Business Council


Join us

Businesses engaged in international trade or seeking to build an international capability and the host of private and public sector professionals that support and facilitate international trade will find many valuable opportunities through active involvement in the VAIBC. Our luncheon programs provide networking and educational opportunities vital to success.  We also periodically conduct special workshops featuring experts in the field on topics we believe to be especially timely and vital to our members, as well as several annual special events, which have historically included our December holiday party and spring golf outing. 

Among the advantages we provide our members are the following:
  • Frequent luncheon meetings held at the OMNI Richmond Hotel, 100 S 12th Street, Richmond, VA, 23219, at discounted member rates
  • Periodic networking events (happy hour, golf outing, VA Conference on World Trade support) where you can meet and chat with industry professionals in a social environment

Our members enable us to continue our long tradition of:

  • Annual sponsorship of academic programs for colleges and universities and other special initiatives - Over $3000 awarded each year.
  • Recognizing service to the international trade community by our annual presentation of the "Rudy Ruderhausen Award" to one of the many qualified candidates we identify each year
  • Contributing as a sponsor of the annual Virginia Conference on World Trade
