A huge thank you to all who came to The Salisbury Center for another fun and eventful Business Appreciation Breakfast!

This morning, about 150 businesses networked, heard from City leadership, and received timely insights on the economy from Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond Economist Joe Mengedoth. The attendees were also the first to lay eyes on Manassas’s newly released 2023 Annual Report.

The City’s growth and ongoing community development will have lasting impact on citizens and businesses for years to come.

2024 Workforce Development Survey

Manassas City Council’s Strategic Action Plan identifies Educational Attainment and Workforce Development as critical to the City’s long-term growth and sustainability. In an effort to create an education and training system with robust workforce development initiatives that meet the needs of the business community, the City is soliciting employer feedback through the 2024 Workforce Development Survey.

Your input is critical! All employers – big or small – located in the City of Manassas are asked to participate. The survey takes less than two minutes to complete with five short multiple-choice questions. Your participation is a crucial element in developing a pipeline of talent to meet our business community’s needs – both now and in the future.

As an incentive, respondents will be entered into a drawing for a $25 HEART BEAT Gift Card. A total of 10 recipients will be randomly selected, but you must respond by July 15, 2024.
