VCRD's 2022 Community Leadership Summit

The Vermont Council on Rural Development (VCRD) is inviting Vermonters of all backgrounds who are working with a goal of improving life in their community to attend the 2022 Community Leadership Summit on Wednesday, August 10, at Vermont Technical College.

Registration is now open for $50 per person, with options available for partial or no payment to register, if needed, by using promo code "PARTIAL" (for $25) or "FRIEND" (for no cost) at checkout. This is an event that is meant to be accessible to all without financial barriers. The day includes a BBQ-style lunch and a Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Party to close.

The agenda is based in part on feedback over the past two years from thousands of Vermonters about the future of our state and the need to strengthen civic engagement and tackle shared challenges together. It will also offer opportunities to build leadership skills, share success stories, and connect to and learn from community leaders of all backgrounds working to advance projects in towns across Vermont. The Summit will be an opportunity for renewal and rejuvenation as we reengage with fellow Vermonters, make new connections, celebrate community successes, talk through shared challenges, and think proactively about the future.
