What People Have Said About Past Summits

I think that the opportunities to learn about the Vermont economy, especially about the granular details, were really valuable and unique to this summit. - Nonprofit Employee

I went to some wonderful sessions and this is one of the events I look forward to the most each year...There are more solutions for dealing with rapid change when we all work together to support our communities.   - Education leader

A plethora of knowledge and talent in one place!

- Downtown Organization Director

I had expected a bunch of old banker types (and other older business people like myself) and was pleasantly surprised by the engaged younger attendees/speakers!

- Local Business Owner

More of these discussions are needed, the Summit is a great way to recognize that there is work to be done. Speaking about healthcare, infrastructure, and becoming a more welcoming state will help southern Vermont and the whole state move forward. The mixture of panelists over the whole Summit was great, hearing from young working people, healthcare workers, immigrants and refugees talk about various topics and issues was helpful. - Health Justice Nonprofit Employee
