SUBJECT:  Virginia Educational Facility Planners Conference, February 27-28, 2012

The Virginia Educational Facility Planners (VEFP) conference will be held at the Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center in Roanoke, Virginia, on February 27 and 28, 2012.  A brochure describing this two-day interactive workshop on educational facilities and planning is contained in Attachment A.

The conference registration is $230 for public sector employees and includes most meals.  Again this year, VEFP is offering a few $500 scholarships to school division personnel to help them attend the conference.  The criteria and application for this scholarship is available on the VEFP Web site at http://www.vefp.org/.

The conference will include an exhibit of recently completed school projects, as well as school construction projects in progress in Virginia.  A jury will judge the completed projects and awards will be presented to the architects and winning schools.

Keynote and major session speakers will present information on a number of critical educational facilities issues.  There will also be eight breakout sessions on various subjects of interest to facilities and maintenance personnel.  I encourage you or representatives from your division to attend this informative conference.

Please register online at http://www.vefp.org/.  For questions regarding the program, please call Vijay Ramnarain, Office of Support Services, at (804) 225-2035, or e-mail Vijay.Ramnarain@doe.virginia.gov.
