VLA 17th Annual Conference Recap

We are so pleased to announce that the VLA Annual Conference in August 2019 at the Homestead Resort was a great success! Attendance exceeded all previous conferences and the Homestead staff was fabulous. Jim McCoy and Michael Harold gave 70 people a great tour of Speyside Bourbon Stave Mill of VA on Friday morning. Puff’s BBQ Catering fed a delicious lunch of “finger licking” good barbecue with all the fixings. Speakers kept us engaged on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. Receptions and banquets were the highest attended by members, political candidates on Friday and welcomed guests. Congratulations to Ronnie Wright for receiving the E. K. Pittman Safety and VLA’s President’s award on Saturday. Please enjoy various presentations, videos, and photos from the conference below.
