PMG offers an integrated series of development programs for staff at varying levels.
As your FFS or ESI session approaches, PMG wants to share the answers to the most frequently asked questions about the PMG’s supervisory programs.
As we return to in-person conferences, we would like to reassure you that we will be taking all necessary precautions to create a safe and healthy experience for everyone. We are constantly monitoring and adjusting based on the guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH). We are working closely with each of our vendors and conference sites to ensure we follow federal, state, and local guidelines, and we are also taking steps of our own to ensure your safety. For all our programs, there will be plenty of hand sanitizers and seating will follow the CDC and VDH guidelines for social distancing. For more information and specifics, please see our PMG Covid-19 Vaccination Statement.
We will begin promptly at 9 a.m. each day. You’ll need to weigh the distance and traffic from your destination to determine if you need to stay overnight at a local hotel to be on time. It’s your decision.
The program will be held at Westover at Maymont at 1000 Westover Road, Richmond, VA 23220 from 9:00 - 4:30 each day. A continental breakfast will be served from 8:30 to 9 a.m. and lunch will be provided on site.
No activities are planned for the evenings. Occasionally, a classmate invites the group to meet at a local spot for dinner, but this is optional.
Business casual is the most prominent attire during the day — something you would wear to the office on a “dress-down Friday.” Please wear layers to ensure your comfort in the training room. It’s always a challenge to achieve a perfect room temperature.
Speakers and participants appreciate your attending to business during regularly scheduled breaks. Cell phones must be turned off or to an inaudible ring. Tell your office that you will have a break in the morning and in the afternoon. Also, during lunch, participants often have time to make calls to the office or review voicemail.
Review the Cost, Policies, and Checklists page for any to-dos before the session starts.
Reminder: All attendees must submit a one-page biography to be included in the Participant’s Notebook. If you have not done so, e-mail your biography to email@example.com or submit your biography as soon as possible. Additionally, please e-mail a photo or headshot of yourself.
Please don’t hesitate to call us at (804) 828-8845 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you at the FFS or ESI!
