That’s a Wrap on the 2022 Main Street Now Conference!

There simply aren’t enough words to express how incredible it was being together again in Richmond, Virginia for the 2022 Main Street Now Conference! It was a wonderful experience welcoming everyone to our great state, and all of us at Virginia Main Street (VMS) hope that attendees from across the country enjoyed the thought-provoking and dynamic sessions, engaging mobile tours, networking with peers, opportunities to explore the city and all other events and activities where we collectively celebrated the power of the Main Street movement. Without a doubt, everyone left Richmond after an energizing and action-packed conference feeling inspired and ready to help each of their respective communities thrive!

“We don’t just serve our institutions and our towns. Our jobs are to serve each other.”

– Kiran Singh Sirah, President, International Storytelling Center (Closing Plenary Keynote Speaker)

While the 2022 Main Street Now Conference was a great success and Richmond was the perfect place to gather #TogetherAgain, we are greatly looking forward to seeing our fellow Main Streeters again next year in Boston, Massachusetts on March 27-29, 2023! Until then, be sure to stay engaged through Main Street America’s Main Spotlight newsletter and follow them on Twitter and Facebook for the latest updates on next year’s conference. See you all then!
