Join the Regional Conversation at the State of the Region Address

Be a part of the strategic discussion by joining us as LEAD Hampton Roads presents its’ 18th Annual State of the Region Address.  There are two opportunities to join in -- Southside Wednesday, October 4 and Peninsula  Friday, October 6.  Since 1999, LEAD has brought together hundreds of business and community leaders each fall for this annual critical regional conversation concerning “where we are” and are best options moving forward.

This year’s topics include the impact that Airbnb has on our tourist industry, the high cost of higher education, and the critical issue of the growing opioid crisis  in Hampton Roads. Learn more about the effects and ultimate cost of these challenges, and what options exist to prepare and strengthen our economy.
