The Suffolk luncheon is the fifth event in the State of the City series. The series kicked off in February in Norfolk, followed by events in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake and Portsmouth. The Chamber's State of the City Series has become the preferred forum for elected officials and mayors to communicate with their constituents and are often sold out events. State of the City addresses are annual updates of each city's progress over the past year and agenda for the year to come. Each address is held in the featured city and is given by the mayor of that city. This event is a forum for interaction among leaders in attendance.
