The 2021 conference theme will be "Building Leadership in Changing Times" and we look forward to bringing you another exciting statewide neighborhood conference in Fredericksburg, VA! Attendees from neighborhoods and municipalities across our Commonwealth will once again 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 designed specifically for youth between the ages of 13-18 years of age called the Youth Café will be offered with workshops designed to help enlighten, engage, and empower them to become contributing members of their communities, facilitate constructive personal change and help create opportunities for themselves and their friends.

The 2021 conference will also continue to solicit nominations from neighborhoods, individuals and youth from across Virginia to recognize the commitment, time, and energy of those who tirelessly volunteer to make their neighborhoods the places they are proud to call home at the annual VSNC Awards 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.

VSNC, Inc. extends a heartfelt thanks to our conference sponsors and exhibitors for without their financial support, this conference would not be possible. Please show them your ongoing gratitude as well by supporting their products, their services, and activities.

Although we are disappointed to postpone this year’s conference, VSNC, Inc. continues to move forward with the planning of the 2021 Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference. In months to come, we will update this website with conference-related information as it becomes available so please check back often and SAVE THE DATE.

Until then and beyond, VSNC, Inc. hopes that each of you and your loved ones remain safe and healthy!
