There are less than two weeks until the VACo Annual Conference Registration Forms will be sent via email and available on our website. We are bringing back the tiered registration fee. Register early to save the most for your county!
Are several of your Board members and county staff planning to attend the conference? If so, consider participating in an independent team-building event. Register the group for the VACo Golf Tournament. The cost is $75 per participant. If you’re staying at The Omni Homestead, enjoy after-dinner games in Downtime, or a movie in Homestead Theater, a Historic Tour of the hotel, or Afternoon Tea in the Great Hall, all of which are included in your resort fee and great opportunities to connect with your county companions.
As you and your county register for the conference, consider what your group would do in case of an emergency. How would your colleagues know that you are safe, or if you are in need of help? Be sure to meet with other attendees from your county before the conference to assign rally points, or designated group meeting places both inside and outside the hotel, in case of natural disaster or hotel evacuation. This is an easy way to account for one another and keep each other safe while away from home.
You’ll note on your registration that we ask for emergency contact information. This is something new that we are implementing into all of our events to make sure that if something happens, we can get in touch with someone close to you. Try to list someone who is not at the conference and also not an office person, in case something happens after office hours.
Stay tuned to County Connections and Conference Tips for details on new conference activities and information on specific conference events.
