Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference, Inc. 

Greetings from the VSNC

We hope you will join us at our annual conference this year...

Building Coalitions to Create Healthy Vibrant Communities

Richmond, Virginia
September 22-September 23, 2017

The conference provides an excellent opportunity for communities from across the Commonwealth of Virginia to come together and share their knowledge, experience and vision on how to make Virginia’s neighborhoods the neighborhoods of choice. While each neighborhood is unique, all neighborhoods statewide face very similar issues and challenges ranging from the basics of organizing to addressing the complicated issues of public safety.

Each year the conference is attended by a diverse group of grass roots neighborhood leaders and youth, non-profit and government staff, and others working in the field of neighborhood development.
