VAHRMM hosted its annual fall meeting in October. The event started with a charity golf tournament, which raised $1,700 to be donated to the American Red Cross. The chapter community also donated school supplies to the Boys and Girls Club, as well as collected food donations to benefit the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia to help with post-hurricane relief.

The sessions were well attended and educational, and the welcome reception and Thursday evening dinner provided attendees with opportunities to network and re-connect with colleagues.

The chapter is looking forward to celebrating their 35th Anniversary next year. Make sure you don’t miss VAHRMM’s 2018 Fall Meeting!
