Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference, Inc. Announces 22nd Annual 2022 Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference to be Held Virtually Online

The Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference, Inc. (VSNC) Board of Directors is proud to announce the 22nd Annual Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference will be held virtually online on Saturday, September 24, 2022 from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM. The conference theme this year is "Neighborhoods: The Threads of a Community's Quilt".

Participants from neighborhoods and municipalities across our Commonwealth and neighboring states will come together online 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 specifically designed for young people between the ages of 13-18 called the Youth Café will also be offered online to help participating youth learn how to facilitate constructive changes in their lives, create opportunities for themselves and friends, and become contributing members within their own respective communities.


The 2022 conference will also honor and recognize neighborhoods, individuals and youth from across Virginia who tirelessly volunteer their time and energy to make their neighborhoods the great places we are proud to call home during the annual Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference Awards Program. 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.

We hope you will plan to participate with us as we continue to work together making all neighborhoods across Virginia - neighborhoods of choice!
