Another Successful Heartland Is in the Books, All Thanks to YOU!

Published in About on July 27, 2020

Everyone at VGM would like to thank the more than 400 members that had at least one staff member attend our virtual conference—Heartland At Home. This year was certainly a break from the norm, but we’re excited to announce that the 2021 Heartland Conference has been scheduled for June 14–16 in our hometown of Waterloo, Iowa. We look forward to bringing everyone back together for next-level networking, unparalleled education, and one heck of a fireworks show! We hope to see you there!

We’d also like to give a very special thank you to our sponsors this year. Your contributions made our inaugural Heartland At Home a fantastic success.
