VSNC , Inc. welcomes you to the 21st annual Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference taking place in Fredericksburg, Virginia on September 25-26, 2020 at the Fredericksburg Expo & Conference Center located in beautiful historic Fredericksburg.

Attendees from neighborhoods and municipalities across our Commonwealth will come together to learn best practices for addressing neighborhood issues of the times, attend informative workshops, network with one another, and share experiences and information toward building stronger communities.

In addition, the Youth Café will be offered to participating youth for them to learn how to become contributing members of their community, facilitate constructive changes and create opportunities for themselves and friends.

The 2020 conference will also continue to solicit nominations from neighborhoods, individuals and youth from across Virginia to recognize the commitment, time, and energy of those who tirelessly volunteer to make their neighborhoods the places they are proud to call home at the annual VSNC Awards Luncheon. These awards have been presented since 2000 as a collective “thank you” to those nominated neighborhoods and individuals, and are the only statewide awards given to neighborhood organizations and individuals for their neighborhood self-help initiatives.

VSNC, Inc. also extends a thanks to our conference sponsors and exhibitors for without their financial support, this conference would not be possible. Please show them your ongoing gratitude as well by supporting their products, services and activities.
