VAM Annual Conference 2019

Lynchburg, Virginia

March 23-26, 2019

VAM Welcomes You to The Hill City!

Forged by vigorous industry, Lynchburg, Virginia has always been a cosmopolitan oasis within the otherwise pastoral Central Virginia.  Our view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and place beside the historic James River has made the Hill City a unique destination for travelers seeking new adventures, or a new place to call home; all while being surrounded by natural beauty.

Downtown and throughout the city, restaurants run by innovative chefs dot the streets, miles of urban trails wind through the city, and our vibrant arts and culture scene give ample opportunity to slow down and meet new friends.

While you’re here, take time to explore our Lynchburg’s Legacies – locations, sights and experiences that will give you an idea of who Lynchburg is; seven of which are VAM member museums! 

We look forward to having you get to know Lynchburg and know you’ll leave feeling renewed and with endless memories.  Visit to plan your trip.
