VBSR Spring Conference Registration, Keynote Announced


for Social Responsibility
VBSR’s 26th Annual Spring Conference



Join us May 12th in Burlington for an opportunity to learn how YOU can
improve your organization’s
triple-bottom-line practices.

This year, we are thrilled to welcome Sonia Kowal, President of Zevin Asset Managment, as our Keynote Speaker. Kowal is responsible for Zevin’s corporate matters, business practices, strategic planning, and marketing. She is also a member of the firm’s investment committee, where she incorporates sustainability issues into decision-making. Kowal considers herself a professional mischief-maker; her favorite aspect of advancing social responsibility is instilling positive, progressive behavior in corporate monoliths.
Throughout the day, you will engage in several workshops (we’ve got 15 on the slate!) designed to help CSR-minded professionals be more efficient, educated, and in-tune with their organizations. You’ll also have the chance to learn from, and engage in, a plenary panel focused on new and proven ways to invest in local Vermont businesses and communities. “Your Money Matters” will provide insights and an opportunity to learn from: Chris Bailey (Vermont Smoke & Cure),
Will Belongia (VCLF), Simeon Chapin (VSECU),
Robin Scheu (Kiva Zip/ACEDC), and
Janice Shade (Milk Money VT).

In addition, we will have a localvore menu (Underwritten by Black River Produce), 40+ exhibitors, a Vermont-themed Cocktail Reception and networking opportunities with more than 300 forward-thinking business professionals.
You won’t want to miss this great day of
networking and education!
