We appreciate your interest in presenting one of the sessions at the 7th annual Vermont Development Conference. Given that we couldn’t have our usual VDC fun in 2020, this is going to be a big year!

The Planning Committee is looking forward to receiving varied proposals from around the industry with a particular interest in sessions that focus on timely issues. Some of these may include lessons learned from the pandemic, updated regulations, and/or important topics like DEI in land development and climate change.
