General Session: Game Plan

  • “Special Events—Planning and Coordination”
    May 13, 2007 marks the 400th anniversary of the founding of the first permanent English settlement in the Americas at Jamestown. Virginia will celebrate with a variety of events, both large and small, beginning in May 2006 and continuing through 2007. Planners expect the celebration to focus world attention on the Commonwealth and the Historic Triangle and to increase visitation in the region—both of which will challenge public safety resources.
