The task force members include economic developers and representatives from local chambers of commerce in the Southern Virginia region, which includes the counties of Halifax, Henry, Patrick and Pittsylvania and the cities of Danville and Martinsville.

Topics to be covered include an overview of supply chain operation, information on international trade from the Port of Virginia, and GENEDGE will unveil the newly developed COVA PPE Playbook. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions to the specialists.
