Conference Highlights

  • All sessions, live and pre-recorded, will be available to registered conference attendees during the conference and the remainder of 2021--you can watch sessions whenever is convenient for you!! 

  • While we may not be able to see you in person this year, an online conference allows us the opportunity to celebrate all of our regions and members around the state. Each of our five regions around the Commonwealth - Northern, Tidewater, Central, Southwest, Mountain Valley - will be daily.  

  • Virtual Exhibit Hall with opportunities to connect with our business community family. 

  • Each day will include two live sessions--a general session that will have a featured speaker or panel on a topic of importance, and a session that was chosen by our conference committee, to allow for conversation and questions.

  • We will be using the Socio platform for the online conference. For those who have downloaded our conference mobile app in the past, this will be a familiar platform, which we hope will provide a user-friendly experience. 


    *Please Note Best Browsers to Use:
