The Founders Celebration

The Founders Celebration

Thursday, March 31, 2022
The Jefferson Hotel
101 W Franklin St, Richmond

Thanks to those who joined us for our Centennial Celebration in the Rotunda of the historic Jefferson Hotel, which was the location of the first meeting of the VMA Founding Members in 1922.

Present at this meeting was a representative from the National Association of Manufacturers, National Industrial Council and twenty representatives of different industries throughout the Commonwealth.  These representatives adopted our first VMA Constitution and By-laws, elected a President and organized committees to act as Directors until such time as the first general meeting of the Association could be held.  Help us celebrate the vision of our Founders and the creation of the Virginia Manufacturers Association at the place it all started.
