RVA 101: For new-to-the-region YPs and the Richmond Curious

February 4, 2015, 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. 
Virginia War Memorial
621 S. Belvidere Street

Does your car or bike have an RVA sticker on it? 

Have you ever selected a restaurant based on an #rvadine Instagram pic?

When you hear the phrase “Have FUNN Go Nuts,” do you immediately crave hot summer nights, fireworks, squirrely fries and local craft beers?

If you answered “no” to any of these questions, you might be new to the area. RVA 101 is designed for new-to-the-region YPs who want to know more about what the region has to offer. Regardless of whether you’re here because of a job or some new ink, navigating RVA’s various hashtags and cobblestone streets can be challenging. We can help.

Leave with:
  • A breakdown of the best Happy Hour spots
  • A weekend to-do list of local attractions and museums
  • Stylist advice on how to look good in spandex #richmond2015
  • A list of the best bands in the city and where to catch their next shows
  • Festival fever
  • A sense of culture and community
  • Ways to connect and share ideas with other YPs 
Attendees will hear from these RVA Insiders: RVA News, Richmond Region Tourism, Venture Richmond, Bike Walk RVA, Richmond.com and more. 

PARKING: Free spots located in the lot behind the VA Ward Memorial. Light snacks will be provided.

February 25, 2015, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. 
Triple Crossing Brewery
113 South Foushee Street

You know those conversations that you’d just like to avoid – the ones with high stakes and even higher emotions? The ones that you expect will be confrontational or awkward? Ever wonder how to give (and also receive) effective feedback, both good and bad? Having these conversations with our peers and managers can be one of the most difficult challenges we face as YPs in the workplace. Join HYPE at Triple Crossing Brewery for the second installment in the 804UM Series. Katherine Busser, CEO and President of the Virginia Children’s Hospital Alliance, will help us learn to tackle these difficult conversations with confidence and poise.
