9 AM - 4:30 PM

Capitol Plaza Hotel, 100 State Street, Montpelier, VT

Free and open to all current and aspiring changemakers for children



We are seeking BIG change for children--really big! And our volunteers and advocates have been loud over the last few years in calling for that change, helping us build this movement from the ground up--all the way up to an early childhood system redesign process this past October that will lead to policy recommendations in the 2018 legislative session.

But as loud as we’ve been in the last year, we need to be louder still, and we need to mobilize--because this next part of the process of creating change will be the hardest yet. If we’re quiet and still, we will lose our momentum and the chance we've built to ensure every Vermont child has a strong start.

This conference is an opportunity to get prepared for changemaking: to hone your advocacy skills, get an inside look at the legislative forecast for this coming session, and meet other passionate early childhood advocates. Together, we will celebrate our successes and chart a course of action to achieve BIG legislative change!
