Annual Conference Info and Highlights



The VAME Board is diligently preparing for your Annual Summer Conference at the Sheraton Virginia Beach Oceanfront Hotel in Virginia Beach. Just as in year's passed, you can count on our educational and informative workshop sessions! 

The oceanfront location was specifically chosen so after a day of workshops you can enjoy: the beach, outdoor activities, museums, fabulous restaurants and even bring your family along.

Please be sure to complete the Shadow Day survey if you are interested in visiting a Virginia Beach business.  You must complete your survey by March 31.
