Members of the Virginia Health Care Association (VHCA) and the Virginia Center for Assisted Living (VCAL) consistently say that one of the greatest benefits and pleasures of membership is attending, participating in, and experiencing the Annual Convention and Trade Show.  This event, with thought-provoking educational sessions led by nationally and regionally recognized experts, as well as successful peers, will give participants fresh perspectives on their careers.

Sponsorship Information

Traditionally, the Convention & Trade Show attracts nearly 500 VHCA members and exhibitors.  In order to provide a first rate experience for our attendees, we are seeking sponsors. These sponsorships provide two key benefits. First, they offset the cost of providing education programs and recognition events; and second, they offer sponsors a targeted and cost effective way to get their organization's name in front of potential customers and clients.

As detailed here, several sponsorships are available for the Convention.  If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please contact Doran Hutchinson as soon as possible at doran.hutchinson@vhca.org or call her at 804.212.1692. As an additional benefit, if you respond by July 12th, your company name will appear in the convention brochure that will be distributed to all VHCA members. Otherwise, arrangements for sponsorships must be finalized no later than August 23rd.
