Lunch Programs

Nine luncheon programs are held each year on the last Wednesday of every month, excluding July, August and December. Luncheons feature networking and a dynamic regional or national speaker focusing on communications strategies and trends and the latest innovations in tactical implementations. Luncheons are held at the Jefferson Lakeside Country Club at 1700 Lakeside Avenue in Richmond.

Luncheons are included in member dues. Non-members may attend the luncheons for $40. Students may attend luncheons for $15. Prior registration is strongly suggested, as space is limited.

Professional Development Sessions

Additional professional development sessions are held at least twice a year, typically during morning hours to accommodate work schedules. Professional development sessions feature a highly knowledgeable guest speaker or panel discussing a specific tactic or more in-depth topic. Previous topics have included national media panels, social media trends and website usability and best practice.

Networking Events

Several times a year, the chapter hosts casual happy hour networking events at area restaurants and bars.
