VEDA’s 2019 Summer Membership Meeting will be the second program in the Telling the Virginia Story series and brings a first-rate program to Portsmouth on June 5th. The meeting will kickoff with a reception on Tuesday Night at the Renaissance Portsmouth Hotel. This reception was so popular at the Winter Meeting in Charlottesville, the VEDA leadership decided to make it a permanent fixture at future Membership Meetings. Be sure to come out early and network with VEDA members and guest. Make plans to go to dinner with a group following the reception and on Wednesday, be sure to arrive early and network before the program begins at 9:00 am.
We hope to see you in Portsmouth in June!
