June 26, 2019 |  Call for Proposals for the 2020 Main Street Now Conference |
The National Main Street Center is seeking education session proposals for the 2020 Main Street Now Conference. For 40 years, the Main Street program has created economic impact and improved quality of life through the preservation of historic downtowns and neighborhood commercial districts throughout the country. At the 2020 Main Street Now Conference in Dallas, Texas, we celebrate this long tradition of excellence in community redevelopment and reinvestment, while focusing on strategic areas of growth for Main Street programs to continue to expand opportunity and strengthen our commercial districts for the next 40 years.

Along with our partners at the Texas Main Street Program, we invite proposals for educational sessions in five thematic areas: Innovation and Ingenuity, Changing Nature of Retail, Equitable Entrepreneurship, Sustainable Solutions, and Preservation and Development – and also encourage perennial downtown and commercial district management topics guided by the Main Street Approach.


All proposals are due by 11:59 p.m. (CDT) on August 19, 2019. Please submit questions to

The 2020 Main Street Now Conference is May 18-20, in Dallas, Texas.
