"It was an incredible week at the Main Street America conference...There was SO much packed into our short time in Richmond, but each one of us feels inspired and excited to bring best practices and unique solutions to our downtown. Thank you MSA for a wonderful experience, and thank you Indiana Main Street for a great time networking with all the attending Indiana organizations!"

"Another Main Street America conference in the books. The theme was “Together Again” and it did not disappoint. I walked away inspired, encouraged, and hopeful. Over 1000 people came together because they believe in the necessity of a vibrant Main Street. To be in a room with so many people who work so hard to help our small towns and small businesses thrive was empowering."
