President and CEO Mike True of the Fort Vancouver National Trust gave us an excellent lowdown, despite technical difficulties, of the past, present and future of the lovely grounds as well as the entrepreneurial activities within the buildings.
What started as one woman’s humanitarian vision, and virtuosity in art and architecture, has become downtown Vancouver’s most iconic location. It also offers affordable event, arts and businesses spaces.
Check out Mike True’s presentation on the exciting developments happening at the Providence Academy!
What’s Up? Who’s There? What’s Happening?
Join us to learn about the Academy, the businesses it houses and Fort Vancouver National Trust’s plans for the future renovation of our historic treasure. President & CEO of the Trust, Mike True, will be there to tell us all about it.
Thursday, October 13 from 7:30-9am in the downtown Hilton’s Heritage Rooms C&D.

July Quarterly Meeting at
Vancouver is Changing Face….Literally!
And VDA has the scoop.
If you missed it, we had presentations on some of the most exciting up and coming developments in Downtown Vancouver from LSW Architects, Hurley Development and Abbasi Design. The Slo Poks and Couve Cycle showed up to give us a warm welcome. Warehouse 23 and Wager Audio helped to make sure that we were all running smoothly with plenty to eat and drink.
If you missed it, the presentation linked below has some snapshots of the program.
Many Thanks to our sponsor
Besides all of the wonderful events happening downtown, VDA’s next big deal will be the second installment of 2016 Word on the Street……See you there!!!
As an entrepreneur (or resident or investor…), VDA knows that you have lots of options. You just want to choose a place where your employees and their families will be happy and stimulated. You want to be close to the services you need. You will look for a spot where you will be welcomed, and where you can find your favorite activities close by. Vancouver’s Downtown Association may be a tad bit biased, but we have gathered some of our thoughts about the topic. Take a look. You’ll see why we love it here in Downtown Vancouver, Washington.
Great schools, quiet open spaces, and a charming downtown balance with easy access to world class art, entertainment, cuisine and attractions without the stress and expense of big city living.
Every year, VDA relies on our neighbors and partners for funding support through the Main Street Tax Incentive Program. Thank you Partners- we couldn’t do it without you!!
