17-19 Oct 2016 Norfolk and Richmond, VA
The hotels visited included Norfolk Waterside Marriott, the Hilton Norfolk The Main (still under construction), the Sheraton Norfolk Waterside, the Hilton Richmond Downtown, and the Richmond Marriott. The group also visited the St. Paul's Church in Norfolk and the Richmond Convention Center.
The National and Virginia groups will independently rank order the hotels, and if they agree on their first choices, negotiations will begin with that hotel for the 2020 Congress. If the two groups do not agree, the SAR Executive Committee will decide.
