Enclosed is a brochure describing the VEFP Conference that we are co-sponsoring with 
Virginia Tech's Division of Continuing Education at the Hotel Roanoke on February 
28-29, 2000.  There will be a two-day interactive workshop on facilities and 
planning.  The registration fee includes a banquet on Monday evening, a continental 
breakfast on Tuesday morning, and a lunch on Tuesday, as well as your room for 
Monday night. There also will be an exhibit of recent school projects completed in 
Virginia and a distinguished jury to recognize the most successful projects.  
Plaques will be presented to the architects and winning schools in four categories.

A business meeting of VEFP is scheduled at the luncheon on Tuesday. This 
organization, now a chapter of the Council of Educational Facility Planners, 
Southeast Region, wants your input on future programs and meeting locations. Please 
plan to attend and express your needs to the Board of Trustees and participate in 
the election of new officers for the coming year.

Please register directly with Virginia Tech using the form in the brochure.  For
