We have a jam-packed agenda (below) and a fantastic group representing 10 higher education institutions and four Vermont partner organizations. Click here to check out who's attending.

Please arrive at the Franklin Environmental Center (The Orchard, Room 103) by 9:45 am so we may start promptly at 10:00 am. We will end at 3:00pm. Lunch will be provided.

Visitor parking permits have been provided for our network for this meeting. If you are a driver and will be parking a car on campus please review the attached driving directions and details for where to park. The last page is a "Visitor Parking Permit" that needs to be printed and placed on your dash. Arrive early to allow time for parking and walking to the Franklin Environmental Center.
