Training Session for VBHR and SRB Members, 9 a.m., March 17

Out of a concern for health and safety and because of a commitment to reduce the risk and spread of novel coronavirus, Governor Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency in Virginia on Thursday, March 12, 2020 in response to COVID-19. In light of this action, we are conducting the Joint Board of Historic Resources and State Review Board Training and the separate Board of Historic Resources Training using electronic communications in accordance with Item 4-0.01.g. of Chapter 1283 (2020 Acts of Assembly), as the COVID-19 emergency makes it impracticable or unsafe to assemble in a single location. The purpose of the meetings is to discuss or transact the business statutorily required or necessary to continue operation of the Board of Historic Resources and the State Review Board and the discharge of their lawful purposes, duties, and responsibilities.

All Board members and staff will be participating remotely.

In the event there is an interruption in the broadcast of the meeting, please call (804) 482-6446.


Registration is required for this portion of the meeting. Registration will remain open throughout the duration of the meeting on March 17, 2021. Once you register, you will receive both a link and a phone number to observe. To register, click here
