Alongside the Virginia Main Street (VMS) program, Main Street America (MSA) encourages all those interested to submit a session proposal for next year’s Main Street Now Conference in Richmond, Virginia! Sessions will focus on three thematic areas and perennial downtown and commercial district management topics guided by the Main Street Approach are also welcomed. Keeping them in mind as you craft your proposal, the three thematic areas are:
- Main Streets for the New Economy
- Community Preservation and Expression
- Housing and Small-Scale Development
Beginning to envision strategic opportunities to strengthen and expand commercial districts as communities emerge into a new economic future, the 2022 Main Street Now Conference will prove to be the perfect setting to gather together and celebrate community resilience and reinvestment. Start planning your session now to share your ideas by the submission deadline on August 13, 2021.
