Connecting the Capitol Community
The Capitol Caucus was conceived by government affairs professionals working in Richmond's Capitol Square to meet the unique unmet needs of their colleagues by providing a solution to the Capitol Square work experience.
Our members are part of a community of smaller, boutique government affairs, association professionals and non-profits who are looking to brand their firm with a downtown professional workspace in a Class A building within walking distance to Capitol Square and a myriad of state agency and commission offices.
Whether you prefer a private office on the main floor or up in the mezzanine, or you simply want to enjoy a breather from the General Assembly in one of our open space options, you will be surrounded by professionals who like you are working towards change.
We like our home office too, but we also like amenities. Our members will not only enjoy all our Capitol Caucus space offers, but they will also enjoy access to multiple dining options, hotel, banking, personal services and parking options all without having to step outside!
Our members are a community of professionals who want to be in the epicenter of where state legislators, administration officials, and influencers come together to get the people's business done.
