March 13, 2010, – Forum Series Summit at Lyndon State College.
More than 500 people in the Northeast Kingdom came together in conversation in earlier monthly forums. The expertise shared by the panelists matched with the enthusiastic interest of the audience members produced the foundational draft of key action steps and priorities within each sector for the region’s new Regional Economic Development Plan.
In the week following the Summit we’ve pulled together written notes. The board will use these notes to refine the preliminary plan and clarify specific action steps and agents. We will expect and encourage agents to begin and sustain the work required to ensure that these action items and priorities are acted upon for the betterment of our region, our towns, our businesses, and our residents.
