Join VBSR for breakfast as we announce our 2017 legislative agenda!
What’s better than talking policy and politics over breakfast and coffee? VBSR kicks off the start of the new legislative session with this morning of networking and conversations between socially responsible business owners and Vermont legislators.
After breakfast, members of VBSR’s Public Policy Committee will announce the organization’s 2017 legislative agenda. Rep. Helen Head, the chair of the House, General, Housing, and Military Affairs Committee will also be awarded VBSR’s 2016 Legislator of the Year award for her work on issues such as Earned Paid Leave and Ban the Box.
Additionally, Senate president-elect Tim Ashe will be addressing the crowd.
VBSR members are encouraged to stay for the organization’s brief Annual Meeting for an update on our 2016 activities.
This event is free for VBSR members, Vermont legislators, and state officials; $10 for non-members. More than 120 people attended last year – don’t miss this event!

SUNCOMMON believes that everyone has the right to a healthy environment and safer world -- and clean energy is where it starts. Energy from the sun can power our lives, heat our homes and fuel our cars. Our mission is to tear down the barriers to renewable energy. We do that by making it easy and affordable for all Vermonters to go solar.
Organized as one of Vermont's pioneering Benefit Corporations, SunCommon is committed to the triple bottom line of people, planet and profit. Most of our 100 workers operate out of The Energy Mill, Vermont's largest net-zero office building. Just 2 years old but now Vermont’s largest solar business, SunCommon installs half of all the residential solar systems in our state. This is fun stuff.
