Even with our combination of ingenuity, determination and, resolution to lead on climate and clean energy, a real need exists for even greater innovation. Where do we go from here, as we head toward an election that may bring unprecedented change not just at home but throughout the nation?
At the Renewable Energy Vermont 2016 Conference & Expo, you'll hear from four leaders at the forefront of our energy transformation during a special plenary session entitled, 2026: Envisioning Our Energy Future.
Great news! The deadline for grabbing the early bird registration rate for the Vermont Statewide Housing Conference has been extended until Friday, October 14.
Every other year Vermont holds the Statewide Housing Conference immediately after the election. This year, the conference on November 14-15 will again be held at the Hilton Burlington but with many exciting changes and offering twice as much as in prior years, including TWO days of exciting sessions, TWO keynote speakers and TWO "Housing Hero" awards. In addition to a thought-provoking keynote address about the book $2 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America, there will be flash "Looking Toward the Future" presentations in the round, special sessions on the outcomes of creative housing partnerships and many other exciting workshops and networking opportunities.
Over 20 Vermont legislators are already registered to attend. Join them on the conference's second day at the legislative breakfast to discuss housing policy and priorities for the upcoming session.
Since 2002, Vermont's Statewide Housing Conference has celebrated the achievements and service of individuals and organizations by recognizing them through the Housing Hero Award.
This year we are expanding our awards and will be naming a Legislative Housing Hero and an Innovation & Impact Housing Hero. The Conference Committee is seeking nominations for both awards before the end of the day today, October 7, 2016.
