VSNC Announces Site for 2019 Conference

Posted January 17, 2019 at 11:57 AM


The Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference, Inc. (VSNC) Board of Directors is proud to announce that the City of Roanoke, Virginia has been chosen as the site for the 20th annual Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference taking place at the Hotel Roanoke on September 12-14, 2019. The conference theme is "20 Years Empowering Neighborhoods to Make a Difference” and the Hotel Roanoke is providing a discounted conference room rate of $129.00/night (excluding taxes) for all conference attendees.

Attendees from neighborhoods and municipalities across our Commonwealth and neighboring states 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, a concurrent conference specifically designed for young people between the ages of 13-18 called the Youth Café will also be offered to help participating youth learn how to facilitate constructive changes in their lives, create opportunities for themselves and friends, and become contributing members within their own respective communities.

The 2019 conference will also honor and recognize neighborhoods, individuals and youth from across Virginia who tirelessly volunteer their time and energy to make their neighborhoods the great places we are proud to call home during the annual Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference Awards Program 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.

We hope you will plan to join us in Roanoke, Virginia as we continue to work together making all neighborhoods across Virginia - neighborhoods of choice!
