The Vermont Council on Rural Development (VCRD) has announced their 2024 Vermont Community Leadership Summit: Forge Forward, Thrive Together! The event will take place on Tuesday, August 6th at Vermont State University in Randolph, Vermont.

Join hundreds of community builders from across the state to build skills, capacity, and connections - and forge forward towards a thriving and resilient future for all. This year’s event offers a range of topics tailored to support and connect people in all aspects of local vitality and resilience and will be an opportunity to dig into what it takes for a community to thrive - capacity, economic vitality, emergency preparedness, youth engagement, inclusion, and more. Attendees can participate in any sessions of interest to them, or follow the optional “Participation Pathways” of Climate Resilience and Long-term Recovery; Youth Leadership and Engagement; or Understanding and Solving Our Persistent Challenges.

All who are interested in supporting their community and the future of the state are welcome and encouraged to attend! Visit to learn more.
