Reconnect and Be Informed at the 5th Annual Discussion with the Department

Since 2017, VAA and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) have held the Discussion with the Department meeting. This event brings together senior leadership from VDOT and industry to discuss current challenges and future opportunities. The last 17 months have been dominated by the hardship of delivering a transportation program during a pandemic. Yet, even with those challenges, VDOT and industry have delivered while preparing for more opportunities with new transportation funding sources.

To kick off the 5th Annual Discussion With The Department, VAA will be hosting a Reconnect Reception on the evening of October 12 at the Richmond Marriott Downtown. VDOT and VAA attendees will be able to catch up and renew old relationships and form new ones. The following day (October 13), VAA will host breakfast and a members’ meeting before the Discussion with the Department begins at 9 am. A full agenda for the meeting is posted on the VAA website, along with registration information. This is a VAA members-only event; if you are not a member and want to join, contact the VAA office ( for membership details.
