Moderator Kesha Ram (Vermont Community Foundation) is joined by panelists Ali Dieng (Burlington City Council), Brent Reader (Mississquoi Abenaki Tribal Council), and Lisa Ryan (Rutland City Board of Aldermen).

Vermont Community Leadership Summit, produced by the Vermont Council on Rural Development, aims to support, encourage, inspire and train leaders with the skills they need to succeed. Summit findings will contribute to a strategic planning process that works to advance opportunities, training, and partnerships to meet the needs of all kinds of leaders; expand leadership engagement in communities; and advance public policies and programs to support the long-term future of community leadership and all it means to the strength of our democracy and the vitality of our Vermont communities. In a democracy, all citizens are called upon to lead – where leaders step up, towns achieve great things. Local Citizens Make It Happen!
