    Hello, VSCA members!

    SAVE THE DATE! We are pleased to inform you that we have a tentatively rescheduled date of Friday, August 7, 2020 for our 2nd annual VSCA Summer Summit 2020. We will hold the event on this date unless we are notified that it is not possible, due to the Virginia Tech campus remaining closed.

    We will keep you posted on event updates as we receive more information and appreciate your continued flexibility. All registrations that have been processed will still be honored for the new date. 

    Reminder: if you need hotel lodging for the event you can contact The Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center to make a reservation by calling (540) 231-8000. 

    Please contact Shannon Edwards (spedwards@hcps.us) or Rachel Wheeler (rwheeler@hcps.us) with any questions that you may have.
