Annual Meetings

Each year the VSA holds its Annual Meeting and tour in a different location of Victorian interest.
Members assemble for several days of motoring and walking tours taking in museums, historic buildings,· banquets, receptions and the Annual Business Meeting where, among other things, the VSA awards presentations are made.

Did you know?
The first Annual Business Meeting was held, standing room only, at the Grolier Club in New York City.· The July 1968 Newsletter reported that "Police estimated the crowd at 150".
In 1978, the Annual Business Meeting of the VSA was held in the US Capitol Building in Washington, DC.
In 2001 at the Annual Meeting in Victoria, BC, John Simonelli and Pat Pixley laid a laurel wreath at the foot of Queen Victoria’s statue in front of the Parliament Buildings.· It was Queen Victoria’s birthday that day, as well as just over 100 years from her death.· John gave an appropriate speech while the press took pictures.· During the night, a good-intentioned but misguided soul moved the wreath to the War Memorial; VSA members moved it back to Queen Victoria—a journey which may be continuing to this day.
In 2005, at the Annual Meeting in Puerto Rico, long time member and founder, Robert Rettig coincidentally met up with an old friend, Ghislaine Grenier, whom he had no idea was a member of the society.· They had not met since living in the same building over 40 years earlier.
