Our Executive Director Christina Goodwin was recently accepted by the Snelling Center for Government to participate in this year's Vermont Leadership Institute program. The Class of 2018 is comprised of 23 associates from across the state who represent a wide variety of organizations from the public, private and non-profit sectors.
The Class of 2018 embarked on their leadership journey in September and will meet for a total of nineteen seminar days between now and June 2018. Associates will engage in intensive assessment and self-reflection, study ethics and systems thinking and become immersed in some of the most important issues facing Vermont. Through this experience, associates are inspired to participate in public service, take thoughtful action within the public sector, and work effectively with other Vermont citizens to bring about positive change. This year marks the 23rd year of the Vermont Leadership Institute, and the Class of 2018 will join more than 500 graduates who are making a difference in Vermont: leading innovative businesses, creating award-winning non-profits, serving in the legislature and state government, and volunteering in their communities.
The Snelling Center for Government is a non-partisan, non-profit organization committed to fostering responsible and ethical civic leadership, encouraging public service by private citizens, and promoting informed citizen participation in shaping public policy in Vermont.
