The Virginia Council of Chapters meets quarterly - usually in JANUARY, APRIL, JULY & OCTOBER. Historically, most meetings were at Fort Lee Virginia (at either the Quartermaster Museum, Women's museum, or Fort Lee Club), considered a centralized location. More recently meetings are held at the Virginia War Memorial. Meetings are occasionally hosted elsewhere, by Virginia chapters. Quarterly VCOC meetings are generally held from 10 AM to 2:30 or 3 PM. Once every two years the VCOC holds an expanded biennial dinner meeting with officers elected at the daytime meeting and sworn-in at the dinner that night.
WHO ATTENDS? VCOC elected and appointed officers, Chapter Presidents and/or Chapter VCOC Reps, Guest Speakers, Chapter Legislative Reps and other chapter leaders who may be interested, including Chapter Auxiliary Liaisons and Chapter Public Affairs Officers & Chapter Membership Chairs.
LEGISLATIVE BREAK-OUT SESSION. Usually meetings include a a portion of time for Legislative Reps from each chapter to meet, then the chairman briefs the rest of the council on results of their session. Occasionally the legislative committee meets on a separate date, prior to the VCOC.
