2022 Board Elections

On Thursday November 18, 2021 at Atlas 42, we welcomed Tameka Jefferson, Community Relations Manager for Richmond Region Tourism and Andréa Lyons, CEO of All About Presentations!

As part of our chapter’s diversity initiatives, it is our goal to build member awareness of the resources available to us within our own backyard. This month’s meeting focused on sharing how you can be a better ally & partner through supporting local and expanding your vendor relationships with minority-owned businesses. Attendees learned more about Richmond Region Tourism’s (RRT) DEI community-facing campaigns, BLK RVA and OutRVA, and heard from local event management company, All About Presentations about their experience with partnering with RRT and other DEI vendors in the Region.
