 The event will take place at the Sheraton Suites Old Town and brings together business and government leaders to learn about the issues we are facing in our communities, as well as honor and celebrate positive change in our communities through philanthropy. Changing the Conversation - How can we create a society where it is easy for every individual to take action and accelerate change within their community? Volunteer Alexandria agrees with the Points of Light Foundation's belief that people become the driving force that transforms our world. We believe when future generations look back on this time, they will see it was an era of sustained, meaningful civic engagement, driven by a community of people ready and willing to do good. It will take all of us, united in action, for this new century to take root.
