Thank you for your interest in Next City Vanguard, which will be held in Richmond, Virginia, September 19 - through September 22, 2023. The Vanguard conference is an intense, immersive city experience that takes participants through tours, panels, and receptions starting early in the morning and lasting through the evening. For the cohort selected, the event is free while costs of travel are covered by participants. During Vanguard in Richmond, we plan to highlight the transformative leaders who are ensuring the city’s future is equitable — and who value truth and reconciliation as a way of achieving that future. With that in mind, we expect to have hard conversations about the complexities of life in Richmond and what it will take to ensure equity for all.

The application is simple, but it may take you some time to compile your thoughts and gather two attachments — a recent resume and a high-res (at least 400x400) head shot.
