2020 DAY ON THE HILL
We were pleased to welcome associates from our member companies to the 2020 Virginia Beverage Association Annual Meeting and Day on the Hill to engage with members and staff of the Virginia General Assembly. This year our efforts focused on educating policy makers and staff on recycling and sustainability measures undertaken by the industry in addition to our usual initiatives to promote wellness and balanced nutrition while also ensuring consumer choice.
VBA was also gratified to have House Democratic Majority Leader Charniele Herring (D-Alexandria) serve as our Keynote Speaker. Delegate Herring sought to comfort the association that with a new Democrat majority, the industry could rest assure that Democrats would work hard to maintain a strong business climate in the commonwealth. She also took the opportunity to thank the industry for the many ways we contribute to our local communities by engagement and philanthropy.
