Annual Virginia Rural Caucus Reception Set for January 18

RICHMOND, Va. – The 2023 Rural Caucus Reception will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 18 in Richmond.

Co-hosted by the Center for Rural Virginia and the Virginia Association of Counties, the annual event brings together state, business and civic leaders to explore the future of rural Virginia, and encourages collaboration and discussion around issues affecting the vitality and prosperity of communities.

“Our annual Rural Caucus Reception is a timely forum for discussion and learning about new measures being considered to drive economic growth in rural Virginia and beyond,” said Kristie Proctor, Executive Director of the Center for Rural Virginia. “The event will help stakeholders gain an understanding of matters affecting rural Virginia and discover possible solutions.”

The event’s reception-focused format gives attendees ample opportunity for interaction and discussion of the key themes of the 2023 General Assembly session.

Secretary of Agriculture and Forestry Matthew Lohr, Secretary of Health and Human Resources John Littel and Lt. Gov. Winsome Earle-Sears will deliver brief remarks that evening. A number of other state administration officials and members of the General Assembly’s Rural Caucus are also expected to attend, along with interested members of the public.

Hundreds of business and government leaders and officials from across the state have typically attended the event in recent years.

The 2023 Rural Caucus Reception will be held 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 18 at the Omni Richmond Hotel at 100 South 12th St. in downtown Richmond.
