Last weekend we pulled out all the stops to put Macdonald Avenue back on the map with our 10th annual Spirit & Soul Festival. Over the summer (and behind the scenes) our Executive Director, Amanda Elliott, stepped up to embrace a unique opportunity to put Downtown Richmond on the map by volunteering to join the National Main Street Center’s new UrbanMain program and participating in a four-day Study Trip to the Center’s headquarters in Chicago as part of her two-year fellowship program with LeaderSpring.

Amanda’s experience on the study trip was featured in a recent UrbanMain program newsletter. Read all about her travels and what it means to have Richmond represented and included in this exceptional cohort of community leaders from across the country.
