SUBJECT:

Virginia Educational Facility Planners Conference February 25-26, 2002

 

 

Attached is a brochure describing the Virginia Educational Facility Planners (VEFP) Conference that the Department of Education is co-sponsoring with Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (VPI & SU) Division of Continuing Education at the Hotel Roanoke on February 25-26, 2002. There will be a two-day interactive workshop on facilities and planning.

 

The conference provides a two-day interactive workshop on school facilities and planning and includes 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. The registration fee includes a banquet on Monday evening, a continental breakfast on Tuesday morning, and a lunch on Tuesday. If you wish to stay at the hotel on Monday night, the conference rate is $59 plus tax.

 

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 input from school divisions on future programs and meeting locations. I hope you or someone from your staff will attend and express your needs to the VEFP Board of Trustees and will participate in the election of new officers for the coming year.


Please register directly with VPI & SU for the conference and/or room using the form in the attached brochure. If you have questions about the program, please call David L. Boddy, associate director, Support Services at (804) 225-2035.
