2019 VASPA FALL CONFERENCE
Conference Theme: Navigating HR Peaks & Valleys
November 11-12, 2019
HOTEL MADISON; 710 S. Main Street; Harrisonburg, Virginia
KEYNOTE SPEAKER Jonathan Alsheimer, a champion fighting for the limitless possibilities of teachers as a driving force for infectious classrooms and positive school culture, will be providing the Keynote Presentation on Monday, November 11th. Be sure to join us!
Located along one of the main thoroughfares of America’s westward expansion and smack in the middle of some of the most spectacular mountain ranges and outdoor recreation spots in Virginia, Harrisonburg has evolved from an agricultural, cultural, and commercial hub during the 19th and 20th centuries to today’s artfully-restored, forward-thinking destination best known for its lively and distinct style. This small city’s fiercely independent founders would definitely approve!
Visitors can dive into Harrisonburg’s fascinating scene starting at the Hardesty-Higgins House Visitor Center, where you can plot your exhilarating outdoor and cultural adventures. Fond of being first in many things, Harrisonburg is especially proud of having the 1st recognized Arts and Cultural and Culinary Districts in Virginia. Why not walk, bike, shop, view, eat, drink and revel your way through the 40 block-district of historic downtown for a full-senses experience you’ll not soon forget?
