Message from the President

Dear VAFRE members and friends,

Given the rapidly evolving situation surrounding COVID-19, and in an abundance of caution, VAFRE is cancelling our regularly scheduled April 7th luncheon. We are looking into the possibility of bringing the speaker in for an upcoming meeting, as we know the topic is of great interest to our membership. 

At this point, it is also likely that we will be cancelling our May 5th Awards Luncheon and we will announce a decision regarding that in the near future. While we are excited to celebrate two outstanding professionals in our field, our first concern is always the health and wellness of our members and guests. Should the luncheon be cancelled, we will work to reschedule it for another date later in the year.

As you know, this is an unprecedented and challenging time for everyone. The next few weeks and months will likely be filled with a lot of "firsts" for us all.  I'm confident that we will meet these challenges and I know that each of you will be vital to your organizations in making that happen.

Thank you for your understanding as we make these scheduling changes and I hope that you and your families stay safe and healthy.

With gratitude,


Jennifer O’Rourke, CFRE, VAFRE President
