PMG offers an integrated series of development programs for staff at varying levels.
Tuition is $1,050 for the three-day program. Tuition includes program speaker fees, materials, a continental breakfast and lunch each full day. Participants are invoiced upon acceptance to FFS or ESI.
We understand situations occur and a participant may need to transfer to another session, substitute a colleague in their place, or cancel their attendance:
Transfers: Transfers from one session to another are encouraged. We ask that you let us know as soon as you can but by two weeks prior to the start of the program if you need to transfer to the next session. Transfers within two weeks before the start of the program will be associated with a $100 fee.
Substitutions: Substitutions are allowed at no cost to the agency as long as they are made two weeks before the start of the program and as long as the assessment has not been completed by the participant who is being substituted. If the assessment has been completed, a $100 fee will be charged.
Cancellations: A processing fee of $200 will be charged for cancellations made more than three weeks prior to the start of a session. For withdrawals within three weeks of the program's start, the full program fee is due.
Payment: Full program payment is due 4 weeks prior to the start of the program.
The tuition for the FFS and ESI is $1,050 per participant. Tuition covers all program fees, materials and lunch each full day. Agencies are responsible for all lodging expenses, parking, and other incidental expenses incurred by participants. Tuition may be paid by check, credit card, check, Electronic Funds Transfer or Internal Department Transfer (VCU departments only). Electronic payments must contain the account number, the FIN number and the invoice number. Be sure to send a copy of the invoice with your payment. The link in your acceptance e-mail provides access to the invoice which can be printed and also emailed. Please send a copy of the invoice with your payment to the address on the invoice.

FFS and ESI is held at Westover at Maymont at 1000 Westover Road, Richmond, VA 23220. There are nearby hotels in Downtown Richmond that honor the state per diem rate. Please make your reservations early to ensure the state per diem rate. When calling the hotel, be prepared to give a credit card number to guarantee your reservation. If you need to make any changes in your originally scheduled arrival and/or departure dates, most hotels require that you notify them 72 hours prior to your arrival to avoid additional charges.
