During the orientation session on Nov. 14, Del. Anderson will brief applicants and their parents, distribute application forms, and answer questions.  Additionally, Anderson will brief parents on the House of Delegates Page Program in 2014 so that interested students may apply in 2013 for that two-month-long program that will take place at the Virginia State Capitol from January through March of 2014.
