This is the first State of the Commonwealth Report. It is jointly sponsored by the Strome College of Business at Old Dominion University and the Virginia Chamber Foundation. While the report represents the work of many people connected in various ways to the university, it does not constitute an official viewpoint of Old Dominion or it's president, John R. Broderick. Similarly, it does not represent the views of the Virginia Chamber of Commerce or it's president and CEO, Barry DuVal.
The goal of the report is to stimulate thought and discussion that ultimately will make Virginia an even better place to live, work, and do business. We are proud of the Commonwealth's many successes, but realize that it is possible to improve our performance. In order to do so, we must have accurate information about "where we are" and a sound understanding of the policy options open to us.
