September 1, 2015 Meeting of Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Advisory Committee in Richmond


At the 2015 Virginia General Assembly session a Sexual and Domestic Violence Advisory Committee was formed from bills SB1057 which was rolled into SB1094 andHB2092. 

Today was the first meeting of this Advisory Committee it was held at the Capitol in Richmond. There wasn’t an agenda posted ahead of time or even a full list of the Advisory members. They voted on who would be the Chair and the Vice-Chair, they discussed what their duties will be (mostly State and Federal grants and disbursement of funding), what their backgrounds are and what future meetings will include.  I stayed for 2 of the 3 hours until they broke for a quick lunch.
