2014 Annual Conference update

August 20, 2014

Empowering Virginia Counties, 80 years strong

This week, VACo’s 80th Annual Conference Registration Information Form was emailed to the VACo Board of Directors, county administrators and confirmed exhibitors. This form includes event information and a preliminary schedule and is also available on the VACo website at www.vaco.org by clicking on the VACo 80th Annual Conference logo. Once complete, this form should be returned directly to VACo.

As a reminder, on Monday, June 16, The Omni Homestead Room Reservation Form was emailed to the VACo Board of Directors, county administrators and confirmed exhibitors. Completed forms are to be mailed or faxed directly to The Omni Homestead. If you would like to attend the conference, but stay somewhere other than The Omni Homestead, CLICK HERE to see our Alternative Lodging List. VACo does not have any agreements with these establishments.

If you do not stay at The Omni Homestead, please know that no meals are included in your conference registration fee. Guests staying elsewhere may purchase a banquet ticket for $75, if they plan to attend. If you did not receive a copy of VACo’s 80th Annual Conference Registration Form or The Omni Homestead Room Reservation Form, please contact Carol Cameron at ccameron@vaco.org. If you have any questions about VACo’s 80th Annual Conference, please contact Amy Elizabeth Vealey at avealey@vaco.org.

The confirmed exhibitor list is growing fast and very few booths are available! If your company would like to exhibit, reserve your booth today by CLICKING HERE. In order to receive a room reservation form, you must submit a 2014 exhibitor application, along with a minimum deposit of $350. Pre-registered attendee lists are available only to exhibitors who have paid their booth space fees in full by October 16. CLICK HERE for more information about exhibiting at VACo’s Annual Conference.

We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their support. Sponsorships provide attendees with additional conference benefits and better quality services at a reduced registration cost. They also provide the sponsor with a great opportunity to advertise and come in direct contact with county decision makers. Several sponsorships are still available. If your organization has yet to take advantage of one or more of the benefit levels, please see the 2014 Sponsorship Form. As the VACo team continues to organize the conference, the options listed will change. Check back often for an updated list of available sponsorship levels.
