VACo Annual Conference Update

June 17, 2015

“Virginia Counties Care” chosen as conference theme

On June 15, the 2015 Annual Conference Planning Committee met to discuss the VACo 81st Annual Conference!

Committee Chair, Mary Biggs, Montgomery County Vice Chair and VACo Second Vice President, led the discussion of logistics, session topics and speakers for the conference’s general and breakout sessions.

The committee chose the theme, “Virginia Counties Care,” which will be featured at the beginning of each breakout session followed by the topic. The committee wants the conference theme to be featured throughout the event. The theme also emphasizes that we are all at the conference as representatives of Virginia counties who care and are there to learn about and discuss topics that are important to all Virginia counties. Stay tuned to updates in County Connections and on the conference webpage for updates on topics, speakers and information.

The 2015 Annual Conference Planning Committee also chose #VACoConf as the hashtag for the 2015 conference, as well as future events. As we continue to use this hashtag through the years, the Twitter feed will create a scrapbook of this and future VACo Annual Conferences.

June 15 was also the date that The Omni Homestead Room Reservation form was emailed to the VACo Board of Directors, County Administrators and confirmed exhibitors. The conference registration forms are completely separate from the room reservations and will be sent in mid-August. Please review the VACo Lodging Policy to familiarize yourself with the room reservation and registration process.

We look forward to seeing you all on November 8-10 at The Omni Homestead in Bath County!
