The Virginia Institute of Government (VIG), a unit of the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service, was established in 1994, by the Virginia General Assembly, to provide training, technical assistance, and information resources to its member local governments. Due to the changing needs of Virginia communities over the last quarter century, the Institute has expanded beyond its original mission. The goal of VIG is to become the central navigator for local governments to assist in building governance capacity and developing dynamic leaders at all levels by curating a portfolio of services, partnerships, and best practices that provide value to our members.
