WELCOME TO VLR 2024!!!!

The Virginia Leadership Retreat is where leaders in the community association industry gather to learn, discuss, and hone their skills. Leaders see reality while keeping their eyes on the horizon. They learn the lessons from the past, and present, and use them to prepare and lead their people, organizations, and clients, into the future. This year's theme of Leadership – Bridging the Gap Between the Past, the Present, and the Future sets the stage for robust dialogue on what it takes for leaders to develop their vision, manage change, and engage the people both inside and outside their organizations to make it all happen. 


Join us at VLR2024 for an inspiring experience of education and networking.
