Experience CLE

In 2015, Virginia CLE® began offering Experience CLE: educational training combined with historical, athletic, and cultural events. The response—and the evaluations—have been so wonderful that we have planned many more for 2016 and beyond. Click on the title to learn more and to register. Don't delay! Our Experience CLE's are often quick to sell out.
