Champagne, Collaboration
& Cake

This past July, attendees of the 2017 VADMO Summer Quarterly Meeting experienced a taste of life in Northern Virginia. The great location of Westin Tysons Corner and personal connections of VADMO members, provided attendees exclusive access to views rarely seen by even the hipest local socialites. Several attendees enjoyed sipping champagne on the rooftop deck of the Tysons Tower building while ending their night with a bit of Brazilian flair at a nearby restaurant called Fogo de Chao. But the most memorable experiences were yet to come.

Because of our wonderful panel of speakers who shared invaluable resources and insights, an atmosphere of productive collaboration emerged. 

As a benefit to those who could not attend, several meeting speakers have provided us with various resources that will soon be available to VADMO members on our website. 

The meeting unexpectedly concluded with a delicious VADMO branded cake! Despite the stormy ride home, we hope that everyone enjoyed this event.
