West Chester PA -- Just after the announcement that West Chester will host the Pennsylvania Downtown Center's 2018 Annual Statewide Community Revitalization Conference June 3-6, the West Chester Downtown Foundation (WCDF) voted to become the first local Major Sponsor of the conference.
"This conference is a remarkable opportunity for showcasing our community's hospitality," said Matt Holliday, President of the WCDF Board of Directors. "We're proud to be able to support a state-wide gathering of professionals plus many others from New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland. They all are coming here to expand their knowledge of revitalization practices."
The theme of the conference is Embracing Change: Empowering the Future of Your Community's Revitalization Effort. "In many ways, West Chester will be an active case study for the participants," continued Holliday. "Everyone will be able to experience the benefits of the changes over the last twenty years and discuss them with the people who made them happen."
The West Chester Downtown Foundation was founded in 2004 as a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that promotes community interest in the vitality, culture, and livability of Downtown West Chester through education, preservation and collaboration.
