The keynote address was given by Vermont Attorney General TJ Donovan who talked about Vermonters and small businesses and the challenges they face now and in the future.
Between 150 and 200 of our community’s top business leaders, legislators, and community members use this opportunity each year to review the Chamber’s mission, goals, and achievements; to celebrate one another’s accomplishments and to acknowledge the contribution of the Chamber’s Business Person, Employee, Non-Profit Leader and Volunteer of the Year.
