Sara, our executive director attended a Virginia Main Street training in Abingdon last month. These 3-day meetings are held annually for all the directors of the local Main Streets in Virginia. The meeting’s focus was on reviewing strategies to increase economic vitality and tourism. If you’d like to learn more about the meeting, the agenda is here: 2016 VMS directors retreat agenda FINAL. The training cost us just under $200 to attend.
In May, Sara will be traveling to Milwaukee, WI for the Main Street Now Annual Conference. We’ve been awarded a $1000 scholarship from the Virginia Main Street program to cover the registration fee and travel costs. To learn more about this event, click here.
