VGEA eNews Newsletter

The VGEA eNews is an electronic newsletter sent weekly (more or less as necessary) during the Virginia General Assembly session to VGEA members as the eNews Legislative Report. It’s also published every four to six weeks the rest of the year, alternating with the VGEA ForeSight newsletter. The ForeSight is VGEA’s publication that’s issued electronically and also printed and mailed, for those members who don’t use email. Contact Communications Director Johnna Cossaboon at jcossaboon@vgea.org with any newsletter questions, or call Member Services Director Sonya Williams to add your address to receive these newsletters, at 877-302-7146.

What VGEA Members Are Saying:

  • This organization (VGEA) provides highest quality support for active and retired public employees…

    Dan Moon
  • VGEA is our Voice in Richmond!

    Judy Franklin
  • VGEA is Your Connection that has the strength of numbers and influence to demand that our issues are addressed.

    April Mela
  • I’m impressed with the VGEA’s General Assembly accomplishments, particularly in the last few years.

    Terry Alfred
  • Thank you, VGEA, for all you do for State employees. Your effort and dedication are much appreciated.

    Jayne Fanshaw, Longwood University
  • VGEA is wonderful and has our best interests at heart…it is truly the voice of the people.

    Joan Stromberg, ABC
  • Thank you, (VGEA) you do a great job representing us! 

    Karen Poff
  • The cellphone discounts I’ve gotten through VGEA have probably been enough to pay my association dues for the rest of my life!

    L.F., Department of Corrections
  • “I saved $200 this year just by changing to Liberty Mutual for car insurance. That’s how much the VGEA insurance discount was – twice my dues!”

    J. L. Stone
  • Great organization and I’m proud to be a member. VGEA worked tirelessly to ensure state employees received a 3% raise this year and not tied to revenue projections. VGEA is our voice to state government. I wish more state employees would join, there is strength in numbers.

    Carolyn Bethea
