The Virginia Retail Merchants Association held its 112th Annual Membership Meeting on October 6th at the DoubleTree Hotel in Charlottesville. 

 

We were joined by our members along with speakers Randy Sparks of Kaufman & Canoles, VRMA Director of Government Affairs Petrina Jones, and political analyst Bob Holsworth. 

 

Randy Sparks held a mini-seminar entitled “Employment Updates that Impact your Business.” VRMA’s Director of Government Affairs, Petrina Jones, held a Legislative Update for our members.

  

Before lunch, attendees shopped the Silent Auction to benefit the Virginia Retailers Political Action Committee (VARPAC). Funds raised during the Silent Auction are second only to the voluntary contributions of our membership paid with membership dues.  VARPAC uses these contributions to ensure the election of business friendly candidates.

 

During lunch, the attendees heard from political analyst Bob Holsworth about the current and future political climate. 

 

We thank all of our attendees and a special thank you to our sponsors.
