      2022 - 2023 Meeting Schedule Announced, Season Pass Available

      Mark your calendar now for all of VAFRE's 2022-2023 programs!

      Though we won't be holding a program in August, VAFRE has a full schedule planned for the coming fiscal year. Once again we will be meeting at The Virginia War Memorial and we will be offering both virtual and in-person registration options.

      Our upcoming program dates are:

      • September 13
      • October 13 (joint program with AFP Central Virginia Chapter)
      • November 1
      • December 6
      • January 10
      • February 7
      • March 7
      • April 4
      • May 2 (Awards program)
      • June 6
      • July 11 (Brown Bag)

      Watch for complete details on each program as presenters and topics are confirmed.

      In the meantime, have you considered getting a Season Pass? If you are tired of having to submit a check request for every program, this could be the perfect option for you!

      A Season Pass covers either in-person or virtual registration for all regular meetings from September 2022 through June 2023, including the monthly luncheons and the Awards luncheon. It  allows members the convenience of one annual payment for VAFRE events at a discounted rate:

      • Just $190.00 for in-person that's $30 less than paying as you register for each event, or like getting to attend the Awards luncheon for free! 
      • Just $60.00 for the virtual option - a discount of $12 off of the pay-as-you-go rates. Those with a virtual season pass will have the option to upgrade to an in-person registration when they wish to do so for a small fee to cover the costs associated with the in-person event.

      ADDED BONUS: Season Pass holders may register one guest to attend any one regular monthly meeting (excludes Awards luncheon) at no additional charge. That's an additional savings of $30 for the in-person pass and $15 for the virtual pass!
