The 2022 VASS-VASBO Winter conference will be held in person January 9-11, 2022 at the Hilton Richmond Downtown, with accommodations to ensure that participants remain healthy and safe. Since we have not met together in almost two years, we want it to be an enjoyable social and educational experience.

The VASS-VASBO Winter Conference traditionally focuses on federal and state legislation and policies with financial implications for school divisions, as well as best practices in local school finance.  This year’s conference will feature over twenty speakers and panelists, with opportunities for discussion. 

One of the highlights will include panels of superintendents and their school business officials discussing examples of how they are using their ESSER funds, addressing procurement issues, and finding innovative solutions to teacher and staff recruitment and retention.

In addition, we hope to have members of the General Assembly and the Governor-elect make presentations in person.
