We are faced with unprecedented times as a result of COVID-19 . It is abundantly clear that with stay at home orders and social distancing, what people value most is connection…to family, to friends, to coworkers, and to their communities. The Virginia Leadership Retreat Committee understands this. Our focus for the past 11 years has been to provide a unique education experience, where our connections restore us—emotionally, intellectually, and physically.

It is the commitment of the VLR Committee to provide an excellent event, catering to our attendees’ need for meaningful connections, and also understanding the need to consider the well being of each and every one of you. For these reasons, the decision was made to cancel the 2020 VLR. It was a difficult decision for all involved, but it just makes us even more energized to return in 2021.

If you have already made your hotel reservation in the VLR 2020 room block, you do not need to do anything; the resort will cancel your reservation in the coming week. If you made reservations outside the room block, you will need to call the resort at 1-800-838-1766 to cancel your reservation according to the terms of your reservation.

We are grateful to all our sponsors from across Virginia and for all the attendees who travel to the event for connection and learning - and we are counting the days until we see you at next year's event. Save the date for VLR 2021 - August 5-8, 2021 - and prepare yourselves for an event that will surpass your expectations and will enable us all to reconnect.

We look forward to seeing you at The Omni Homestead Resort in 2021!
