Hello, fellow Arlingtonians! I am Elizabeth Addington, the new Operations Manager at the Chamber. Proudly born and raised in Alexandria and a current resident of Arlington, I’m delighted to support my community in this new role. I graduated from James Madison University in 2018 with a degree in Art History and Technical Theatre and earned a Master’s in Management from George Mason University in 2021. With my passion for mission-driven work, relationship building, and back-of-house operations, I am thrilled to serve as the Chamber’s first point of contact for our members and greater Arlington community. I am inspired by the Chamber's spirit and willingness to always lend a helping hand and its genuine investment in the growth and success of each and every individual, small business, and large organization in Arlington.
A little bit about me — I am a huge soccer fan, love rock and roll, and enjoy trying the food of different cultures, prompting me to explore Arlington’s fantastic culinary scene, which will come in handy for when I manage Arlington Restaurant Week later this year. On weekends, you can catch me at a morning skate at MedStar Capitals Iceplex, sipping a warm cup of tea, or at Bowlero Arlington for a game night with friends. Whether you work, live, or do business in Arlington, I look forward to serving each and every one of you!
