United States Chamber of Commerce
Wymond Associates joined the US Chamber of Commerce in December of 2012. The US Chamber is the world’s largest business organization representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions. Members range from mom-and-pop shops and local chambers to leading industry associations and large corporations, all of which count on the Chamber to be their voice in Washington, DC.
As members of the US Chamber, Wymond applied for the 2013 DREAM BIG Small Business of the Year Award honoring America’s small businesses who embody the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship. This is an outlet for small businesses to advocate for pro-business policies and share successful ideas with their peers. Wymond hopes to attend the Summit taking place locally in April 2013.
American Legion Small Business Task Force
Wymond’s CEO Mark Adams has been proud member of the SBTF since 2011. The American Legion Small Business Task Force was chartered in 2006 by The American Legion Economic Division. Its mission is to gather information, data and research regarding the current and future economic status of veteran businesses. Data is gathered through congressional channels, regular meetings, expert presentations, federal agencies and field analysis. Findings are evaluated, and recommendations are made to Legion leadership.
The task force is made up of successful veteran business owners, federal agency officials and American Legion leadership. Meetings routinely include presentations and attendance from federal agency heads, congressional staff and business owners from across the country. All task-force members participate as volunteers at their own expense.
The task force’s outreach efforts have included hosting Veterans Small Business Training Programs at the past four American Legion national conventions. These training sessions deliver timely, relevant and valuable information to help veteran-owned businesses reach the next level and increase profitability. Speakers include professional trainers, senior federal executives, contracting experts and seasoned veteran business owners whose only motivation for participating is to help other veterans succeed

Wymond has been a proud member of MVLCC since 2007. The Chamber was established in 1954, as premier business organization to represent both Lee and Mount Vernon districts in Fairfax County, Virginia. Today, more than 425 businesses belong to this organization.
