2022 VAEE Annual Conference: ResiliencEE & Reinvention

Sponsored by Dominion Energy

Conference Overview

2022 Conference Update

From all of us at VAEE, we are excited to have conference registration back in action! The new dates allow us a greater opportunity to convene outside without shivering. We hope you can join us this summer for learning fun and finally convening together as an EE community since the pandemic. Registration reopens on April 1, 2022.

All registrations will be transferred to the new dates unless a refund was requested! As we are now only offering a half day of work shops on 8/12, there is a slight price change for single day registrants. The Search for the Red-Cockaded field trip option and a Clean Up with Keep Virginia Cozy will be held on the morning of Friday, 8/12. Based on your field trip and workshop selection, we will be transferring your registration and issuing refunds as necessary on a rolling basis over the next few months. We appreciate your patience as VAEE remains largely volunteer run!

Please send all refund requests to TREASURER@VIRGINIAEE.ORG. You may also consider donating all or a portion of your registration to VAEE if you are unable to attend. Any other questions may be sent to both EVENTS@VIRGINIAEE.ORG & CONFERENCE@VIRGINIAEE.ORG.

Thank you and stay well,

Bianca Myrick & April Harper

Executive Director & Board Chair

Our 2022 VAEE conference theme is resilencEE & reinvention. Join us as we re-imagine a post-COVID world for Environmental Education; a world with diverse partnerships, resilient communities, and a broader concept of what it means to be an Environmental Educator.

Enjoy a conference full of professional development, networking, learning, and field experiences that will help you expand your knowledge of environmental literacy, efforts, and resources in the Commonwealth and beyond.

Please Note: VAEE will require proof of full COVID-19 vaccination for everyone attending the 2022 VAEE Conference. Be prepared to show proof of vaccination during the check in procedures.

Why Become a Sponsor?

The Virginia Association for Environmental Education (VAEE) reaches environmental educators and teachers across the Commonwealth of Virginia. Although we provide ongoing collaboration and professional development opportunities year-round, the Annual Conference is a time to come together as a community, learn from education and policy experts as well as one another, and inspire the upcoming generation of environmental educators. Your generous sponsorship enables the VAEE to keep these valuable experiences equitable, provide resources through scholarships, and grow our organization for a more environmentally literate Virginia.
