Speaking at the Illinois Main Street Conference 2020

Illinois Main Street, National Main Street Center

Alas this presentation has been postoned due to COVID 19. 


It is such a treat to be asked to speak at the March 2020 conference for the newly reorganized Illinois Main Street program. We are hoping to see many old friends in Springfield IL Two years ago the National Main Street Center received a grant from the Driehaus Foundation to provide technical assistance to now 19 Main Street communities around the state along with three neighborhoods in Chicago being serviced under the Center’s UrbanMain program. This conference is made possible by the generous sponsorship of Illinois Lt. Governor Juliana Stratton and the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.
