On May 3rd, 1999 the first Virginia Association of Regional Jails annual conference was held at the Fort Magruder Inn in Williamsburg, VA. This event turned out to be an overwhelming success. With over 240 in attendance and over 50 vendor exhibits, plans were made to continue this yearly gathering.
