Participant Registration

All participants must register, presenters and attendees alike. Please follow this link to register by May 15.

The VCCS peer group program is fully funded by the Office of Professional Development. Registration is free but we do need accurate headcounts and ample time to prepare materials.


Call  the Stonewall Jackson Inn at (540) 885-4848 by May 2nd and be sure to ask for the Virginia Community College System room block. You will need to guarantee your reservation with a personal credit card; however, the charge will be transferred to the VCCS master account upon check in. You will only be billed in the event of a no-show or for incidental charges.

In order to be afforded the coverage and protection of our VCCS contract with the hotel, you must follow our hotel booking procedures. To reserve a room or to inquire about the hotel’s cancellation policy, please call the hotel reservations number noted above. Do not reserve your hotel room through the hotel’s website (unless we indicate otherwise) or through an online booking site (i.e. Orbitz, Expedia, Kayak).
