Host Lauren-Glenn Davitian speaks with Sharon Combes-Farr, Project Director with the Vermont Digital Economy Project, on the organizations goals and their upcoming conference, September 23.
VCRD’s Vermont Digital Economy Project will be hosting a conference on September 23rd at the Montpelier State House, called “Vermont Connected: Envisioning the Future of Vermont’s Digital Economy.”
The conference, which will be opened by Governor Peter Shumlin, will involve a variety of sessions. In the morning, speakers will share their ideas, experiences, and stories in short 10-minute increments. These talks will be followed by teaching workshops, where conference participants will have the opportunity to dive more deeply into a particular area of interest, and learn some hard and fast skills. The afternoon will focus on the future of Vermont’s digital economy, where conference attendees will formulate ideas for the future and craft policy suggestions.
The Vermont Connected conference will focus on four tracks: Educating for a Digital World, Building Effective Organizations, Creating Resilient Communities, and Steering Vermont’s Digital Future. There will be multiple sessions in each track.
