2017 Annual Conference Update

June 16, 2017

“Communications | Engagement | Knowledge | Success” is the theme of VACo’s 2017 Annual Conference and will tie into the general and breakout session topics. A preliminary agenda is available to help familiarize attendees with the conference schedule.

The Omni Homestead Room Reservation forms were sent by email to VACo Board of Directors, County Administrators and confirmed exhibitors on Thursday, June 15. The hotel has blocked out the conference dates in the online registration system, and only faxed or mailed reservations will be accepted. To refresh yourself on room reservation process, check out the VACo Lodging Guidelines. If you have any questions about room reservations, contact Carol Cameron.

If you plan to attend the conference, but stay at a different location, our Alternative Lodging List includes lodging near The Omni Homestead. VACo does not have any agreements or arrangements with these establishments. Note that there are no meals included in your conference registration. If you stay at The Omni Homestead, your breakfast(s) and dinner(s) are included in the cost of your room fee, including the Sunday night annual banquet for those with Sunday night room reservations. If you stay elsewhere and wish to attend the banquet, you will need to purchase a banquet ticket for $75. The option to purchase a banquet ticket will be on your conference registration form.

The conference registration forms will be available in mid-August. Conference registration is separate from room reservations, and you must be registered to attend conference events.

Are you a golfer? Or do you want to try your skills on The Omni Homestead Old Course? Register for the golf tournament today. We have new prize levels available, so try your luck on the course to win a prize. Associate members and exhibitors – interested in sponsoring a portion of the tournament? We have golf tournament sponsorship opportunities available starting at only $25.

New this year, during Monday’s Opening General Session, the VACo Team asks current and former military service members for a photo to appear in the continuous loop PowerPoint presentation played during the program. If you want to participate, please send a photo with your name, branch of service and rank to John Kandris.
