Three Big Announcements!

We’ve moved
I am pleased to report that, effective May 15, 2017, the Virginia Restaurant, Lodging & Travel Association relocated its office to 5101 Monument Avenue, Suite 206 in Richmond.
The move was a long-time goal for the Association. We hope the move will help us to better connect with our membership and the hospitality and travel industries. We are still unpacking the boxes and getting the furniture in place, but we invite you to visit us next time you are in Richmond!

2017 Ordinary Awards nominations open
Save the date for the 2017 Ordinary Awards and Dinner on Monday, October 2 in Richmond. At the event, we look to honor the unsung heroes of Virginia’s hospitality and travel industry. So head on over to, check out the 2017 nominations information, and submit a nomination (or five) for the staff members in your organization who hold the place together!

ServSafe launches new manager book
The ServSafe Manager book and ServSafe Coursebook have been updated to the ServSafe 7th Edition. The new edition reflects a new job task analysis (JTA) and is based on the 2013 FDA Food Code and the Supplement to the 2013 FDA Food Code.
The updated ServSafe Food Protection Manager Certification Exam, based on the new JTA, will not be released until later this summer. Until the new exam is available, VRLTA will teach 6th Edition (6R) content with the use of the 7th Edition textbooks.

ERIC TERRY is president of the Virginia Restaurant, Lodging and Travel Association.
