MIDDLEBURG, VA (July 16, 2015) – Salamander Resort & Spa, the luxury resort located outside Washington, D.C. and owned by noted entrepreneur Sheila C. Johnson, received the Centurion Medallion Award awarded by U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Committee of 100.

“We have the pleasure of working with some of the very best people in the hospitality industry and Salamander Resort & Spa embodies what a great hotel should be. Salamander now joins that list of iconic properties to host Committee of 100 with both excellent service and accommodations,” said Suzanne P. Clark, executive vice president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

For more than 40 years, leading association executives have gathered under the banner of the U.S. Chamber’s Association Committee of 100 to network, build partnerships and discuss current issues. The Committee also helps determine the benefits and services offered to association members; Salamander hosted the committee for its annual meeting at the 340-acre luxury resort.

“It was an honor to host the Chamber’s Committee of 100 at Salamander and showcase the immersive experiences we have to offer as the East Coast’s newest luxury destination,” said the resort’s General Manager Reggie Cooper.

The prestigious award is bestowed upon those hoteliers who have hosted the Association Committee of 100 Meeting with distinction. Past recipients include The Greenbrier in West Virginia, The Broadmoor in Colorado and The Resort at Pelican Hill on the coast of Newport Beach, CA.
