On Friday, August 14, the 2015 Annual Conference Registration forms were sent by email and posted on the VACo Website, and VACo is excited to announce that we have had our largest registrations at this point ever! These early registrants are taking advantage of the new tiered registration fee that reduces the member cost of $225 to $205 for those registered before September 30. From October 1 through 31, the member fee will be $225, and member registrations received November 1 or later will be $275 per attendee. Make sure to take advantage of this new feature and save money for your county.
When registering, remember that Monday’s VLGMA Networking Luncheon is a ticketed event. Those tickets can be purchased when you register for $40.
As you and your county register for the conference, consider what your group would do in case of an emergency. How would you let your colleagues know that you were safe, or if you were 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.
Be on the lookout for information that new and old members alike may find helpful when navigating their way through the VACo conference, as well as The Omni Homestead. Issues such as what is going on in the conference and where to be, as well as what to wear during your stay will be answered. The Omni Homestead has dress policies for different areas of the hotel, including restaurants and public areas alike.
