Don’t miss the early bird registration rate! After September 30, the member registration fee increases to $225. Be sure to take advantage of this new feature and save money. You can also register to play in the Annual Golf Tournament on Saturday, November 7 or the VLGMA Networking Luncheon on Monday, November 9.
Be sure to check out the preliminary conference agenda available now. Although some items and times may change, this will assist attendees with scheduling their time at the conference and provide them with speaker information and session descriptions, so they can chose the sessions they want to attend. We are in the final stages of developing this year’s conference app. It should be available mid-October. Be on the lookout for the release and download information in future issues of County Connections and don’t forget to read the Conference Corner tip for snippets of useful information.
Consider getting a group of colleagues together for one of the events during the conference. Saturday’s golf tournament is a great way to meet new friends and get reacquainted with the old ones. Remember that Mulligan profits will be donated to Bath Animal Welfare Foundation. Sunday’s Non-Denominational Worship Service will be led by the Speaker of the House William J. Howell. Or maybe you want to get active during the 20-Minute Walk-and-Talk during the Monday lunch sponsored by SunTrust. This heart-and-mind healthy program was started last year and participants liked it so much we are doing it again. During the last twenty minutes of Monday’s lunch, grab a group and meet the rest of us at Attendee Registration (Mount Vernon Foyer) to walk the grounds for 20 minutes. If weather won’t allow an outside stroll, we will walk the hotel halls. It’s a great way to get active during a day indoors that is packed with education. It also promotes healthy digestion and helps to avoid afternoon drowsiness.

VACo Annual Conference TIP
The bottled water was such a hit with attendees last year, we have decided to do it again in 2016!
We have also chosen to go with the conference tote bags that are made from recycled plastic bottles. These are the same bags as last year with the updated logo chosen to hopefully balance out the bottles used during the conference. Let us know if you can think of additional ways to make the VACo Annual Conference a little bit “greener.”
