Registration is open for the Vermont Community Leadership Summit ~ August 6, 2024

On August 6, 2024, hundreds of community builders from across the state are coming together to build skills, capacity, and connections.

This event will be an opportunity to dig into what it takes for a community to thrive – capacity, economic vitality, emergency preparedness, youth engagement, inclusion, engagement, and more – and will offer a diverse range of topics tailored to support and connect people in all aspects of local vitality and resilience. Through workshops, panels, and networking sessions, attendees will gain insights to drive local initiatives, build connections and resources, and exchange success stories and best practices.

New this year are optional participation pathways which attendees can choose to follow:

  • Climate Resilience and Long-term Recovery
  • Youth Leadership and Engagement
  • Understanding and Solving Our Persistent Challenges

See the Agenda for a list of sessions being offered:

Registration is $50 with reduced fee options by using promo code “LUNCH” (for $25) or “FRIEND” (for no cost). This event is meant to be accessible to all without financial barriers.

All people who care about their community and the future of our state are welcome and encouraged to attend!
