VBSR's annual spring conference is our biggest event of the year, drawing over 350 attendees. The day-long conference, “Local Innovation, Global Inspiration: Leveraging Grass Roots and Global Action to Advance Social Responsibility,” held in Burlington, Vermont is a great chance for the community of like-minded business people to come together, network, and hear the latest on innovative SR business practices. The conference showcases cutting-edge, socially responsible ideas being implemented in companies throughout Vermont and the United States.
This year, VBSR is proud to announce Judy Wicks (White Dog Café, BALLE) and Bart Houlahan (AND 1, B Lab) as our keynote speakers. In addition, the Spring Conference will provide 14 different workshops based around the principles of people, planet and profit. Finally, if you are coming for the conference, we hope you will stay through the afternoon to hear Governor Shumlin address the crowd before the presentation of the 2013 Governor's Awards for Environmental Excellence!
