RCP hosts periodic Community Forums to promote effective collaborations based upon constructive dialogue principles and best-practices. Our vision is to create a more resilient and thriving Roanoke Valley by leveraging diverse stakeholders to address the complex challenges impacting all of us.
Thanks to everyone who participated in our October 5 meeting. Our purpose was to develop questions on critical topics that will stimulate collaborative discussion – with those running for office, other community leaders, and ourselves.

Ours is an organic, 100% volunteer led movement that does not require you to wait for our lead or approval. Please act!
