The VACEOs Spring Retreat 2022 will be held Marriott Virginia Beach Oceanfront April 27-29, 2022. New to the Council? Here are some frequently asked questions about the Retreat experience.
(This event is for VA Council of CEOs Members and Sponsors only.)
A: Yes. Your VACEOs Membership includes a ticket to this special yearly event where Members are able to learn and connect with national thought leaders and each other. (And have some fun too!)
A: Members who attend the Retreat have a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn from national keynote speakers and take advantage of various leadership workshops. Program meals and planned activities from Wednesday night to Friday mid-day are also included for Members.
Membership does not include hotel rooms/expenses or activities outside of those offered within the program. Visit the 2022 Retreat Registration page for a detailed listing of the activities available at this year’s event.
A: Yes! We strongly recommend you come down on Wednesday. This year we will have a reception on the Cavalier Great Lawn. You don’t want to miss that. And during the day there are special activities. Why not maximize your time by making connections during one of the group activities planned that day? Events include a bourbon tasting, indoor skydiving at IFly, guided tour with Nature Bus, and cornhole. For a sit-down dinner on Wednesday, make your own plans at Orion’s Roof or Tulu’s Seaside Bar and Grill at the Marriott.
Visit the 2022 Retreat Registration page day for a full listing of events for each day.
A: Yes. As soon as possible! We have a block of rooms reserved through April 5. Use the special group link found in your confirmation to make your reservation.
A: The Retreat program is designed just for members and sponsors. We recommend that you immerse yourself. After all, this is a business retreat. We will have guest tickets for our two evening social events. Some folks have their spouse join them on Friday afternoon for an extra night or two of R&R. We have a reception Friday night just for the “lingerers.” Our special room rates are good several days before and after the Retreat.
A: Not really. Let’s call it business casual or resort casual. Relax and be comfortable.
A: If you arrive Wednesday, please check in the hotel, (time permitting), before you make your way to the group activity you’ve registered for or take advantage of other amenities, such as the spa.
If you arrive Thursday morning, we will officially welcome you at the Retreat Registration desk located on the second floor outside the Seaside Ballroom starting at 8:30 am.
Still have a question? Please contact us.
A: All of the keynote presentations will be recorded and uploaded to the Event Replays Library in VACEOs Connect.
