Downtown Intersections 2017!

Virginia Main Street is happy (and excited) to announce that registration for Downtown Intersections 2017 is officially open! We will be in Winchester from Monday, July 10th through Wednesday, July 12th at the beautiful George Washington Hotel.

Join us on Monday for an intensive board training. This is  designed to provide your board with the background knowledge, skills and tools to move your Main Street organization forward in a quickly changing world. Specially designed for Main Street boards, the principles of proper board governance are tailored to provide immediate impact. Consider sending 3 or more board members; group discounts available.

Monday afternoon will also bring walking tours of Winchester’s historic downtown and local gems such as the Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum. After the training and tours wrap up we will wind down with a welcome reception at Winchester Brew Werks.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be educational, inspirational, and empowering.  Sessions include downtown trends, resources for design projects and business development initiatives, in-real-life examples from communities who are innovating, and the opportunity to be hands on with branding and retailing workshops, as well as DIY market analysis for your district.

Virginia Main Street wants to see as many of our communities, stakeholders, board members, program coordinators, economic developers, building owners, business owners, entrepreneurs, and downtown revitalization fans in Winchester as possible. Please contact our office for financial assistance or group discounts.

See you in July!
