Upcoming Conferences

LGA’s annual spring, fall, and regional conferences keep members up to date on issues of local government law, trial and appellate practice, and related fields. Conference programs offer 6–10 hours of MCLE credit, with ethics credit offered annually. LGA business meetings are conducted in conjunction with the conferences. LGA's conference locations are selected by the board of directors at least one year in advance. To ensure that conferences are held throughout the state, sites are rotated among five major geographic regions: West of I-81, Piedmont, Central, Tidewater, and Northern Virginia.

Please note that for this conference, an Awards Luncheon on Friday will replace the traditional evening banquet. This means you'll have the chance to have dinner on your own that evening. There are dozens of restaurants near the Omni. For a guide to local dinner options, click here. Restaurants are listed between pages 98 and 124. Those located in Shockoe Bottom, the Shockoe Slip, and Downtown are closest to the Omni. Down the street from the hotel, the city will host its popular annual Richmond Folk Festival that weekend, so we recommend making your dinner reservations well in advance.
