Held in an office space at Tysons Corner, this annual event was attended by over 100 Chamber members and community leaders.

"The ViennaTysons Regional Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to honor Delegate Keam for his tireless commitment and dedication to business and the community in the Vienna Tysons region," said Chamber President Lisa Huffman. "Mark is one of those special individuals who strives to make our community a place where you not only want to work but where you want to make a home," Huffman added.

"I really appreciate this award, but I don't think I deserve it as I'm honored enough to be your elected Delegate and to serve this great community," stated Delegate Keam in his acceptance speech, adding "The recognition should go to everyone member of the Vienna Tysons Chamber who makes this community a great place to live, work, and raise a family. You are all Citizens of the Year!"
