Virginia Crossings Hotel

Join us for a breakfast buffet followed by gatherings of VSAE's Shared Interest Groups (SIGs). These member-led groups are organized around areas of interest and offer a forum for you to learn from your peers about the challenges you face. Though SIG meetings are usually limited to VSAE members, this annual event is open to anyone interested in seeing what a VSAE SIG is all about. Whether you are a CEO or senior staff of an association; a meeting planner; part of an AMC; a hotelier or other supplier of services to associations; or involved in communications & marketing, government affairs, or technology - there is a SIG for you!
