The Lake’s Premiere Business Networking
Lake Anna Business Partnership was created as a non-profit entity in 2001 by a group of business owners and home owners alike, to promote travel and tourism in Lake Anna, Virginia, improve business conditions and promote regional growth while preserving Lake Anna’s beauty. The Partnership is funded through membership dues and fund-raising events.
