LEAD Hampton Roads invites you to be a part of the strategic discussion and join the hundreds of business and community leaders who gather each Fall for THE critical regional conversation concerning "where we are" and what sound options lie ahead. For the past 18 years, the State of the Region Address has inspired and challenged us to take our region to the next level.

The three pillars of the regional economy DEFENSE, THE PORT and TOURISM have improved and prospects for future growth are looking up. We ask whether Hampton Roads has finally emerged from a "lost decade" and if the future is bright.
