The County Supervisors’ Forum helps supervisors concentrate on critical issues facing counties today: intergovernmental relations, financial responsibilities, schools, economic development, transportation, environmental protection, legal issues and more. An overview of county government and the work of county supervisors are covered.
Newly elected and incumbent supervisors, chief county administrative officers and other government managers should attend. These leaders will come away with information they need to steer their locality forward.
The conference registration fee is $295, which covers County Supervisors’ Manual, Friday dinner, Saturday lunch and Sunday lunch. Spouses and guests whom attend may register for $150, which covers those meals.
The conference takes place on even years in early January at the Richmond Marriott. VACo will release room rates and instructions on how to reserve a hotel room prior to the forum.
