Spring 2009 Virginia Main Street Monitor now available

covervmsspring3The Spring 2009 Virginia Main Street Monitor is now available in its new form, an electronic technical brief.  The new edition offers best practices for structuring effective promotional campaigns, culled from our Virginia Main Street network.  The brief includes tips on partnering, constructing a press release, and debriefing the event.

The Monitor‘s new electronic form reduces costs and uses fewer paper resources.  The semi-annual publication is available for download online at the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development’s newsletter archive and here at the VMS Blog.  And, if you aren’t already signed up for Virginia Main Street  communications, you can sign up  to receive them automatically and conveniently in your e-mail inbox.

If you have comments on the new form or recommendations on topics for future editions of The Monitor, contact Doug Jackson at: DouglasJackson@dhcd.virginia.gov.
