This is our day to advocate for counties at the General Assembly. Join us at VACo County Government Day on Thursday, February 2! Registration opens at 11 a.m. and the event kicks off with a boxed lunch at noon. Our keynote speaker will be Governor Terry McAuliffe who will address attendees on issues that affect counties.
VACo staff will provide legislative briefs before charging all present to meet with their General Assembly representatives that afternoon. For information on how to reach your representatives, see the Virginia House of Delegates Member Listings and the Senate of Virginia websites. Find information about VACo’s positions in the 2017 Legislative Program, created by VACo Steering Committees, and adopted at our Annual Business Meeting. We will distribute our VACo County Government Day Bulletin at the event.
We encourage all counties to participate in the legislative process – hear briefs on the issues and make appointments to speak with your representatives that afternoon. The VACo County Government Day event should conclude around 1:30 p.m.
