Welcome to the Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference Home Page
We hope you enjoyed the 14th annual Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference in 2013 and are looking forward to this year's conference!
Neighborhoods Reaching for a Better Tomorrow
The annual Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference provides an excellent opportunity for communities from across the Commonwealth to come together and share their knowledge, experience and vision on how to make Virginia’s neighborhoods the neighborhoods of choice. While each neighborhood is unique, all neighborhoods across Virginia face very similar issues and challenges ranging from the basics of organizing to addressing the complicated issues of public safety.
Each year the conference is attended by a diverse group of grass roots neighborhood leaders and youth, non-profit and government staff, and others working in the field of neighborhood development.
VSNC also thanks our conference sponsors for without their support this conference would not be possible. Please show them your ongoing gratitude as well by supporting their products, services and activities.
We look forward to seeing you at the 15th Annual Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference in Lynchburg, Virginia on September 18-19, 2014 and hope you will SAVE THE DATE!
