In addition to its roster of interesting keynote speakers and informative breakout sessions, VACo’s Annual Conference will provide opportunities for county officials to gain recognition.
For example, through VACo’s Achievement Award Program some county officials will be recognized for reaching levels of excellence in providing a variety of services.
Time will also be allotted to honor graduates of the Supervisor Certification program, a partnership between VACo and Virginia Tech that provides valuable educational opportunities to county supervisors.
We also hope many counties will be recognized for achieving certification under VACo and VML’s Go Green Challenge. Please see VACo’s website for information about registration and certification under the Go Green Initiative.
Some of the breakout session topics will include: an overview of local and state finances; job creation at the local level; economic development in rural areas; an update on transportation issues; the challenges lying ahead for local and state retirement programs; Medicaid expansion; communications with members of the General Assembly; and development of local stormwater programs.
On Aug. 15, VACo released to its members registration information about the 2013 Annual Conference. The online version of the registration form is available on VACo’s website.
