“Change Begins with You: Using Your Voice to Make a Difference”

Our 2024 Annual Conference “Change Begins with You – Using Your Voice to Make a Difference” was held on April 2, 2024, at the UVM Davis Center from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

This year our event began with a welcome from VFN’s Executive Director, Jacqui Kelleher, and former South Burlington State Representative to the VT House, Maida Townsend, kicked off our day with inspiring opening remarks.

We then welcomed our featured presenter, Amy Shollenberger, from Action Circles. Amy provided a full day, in-depth, interactive training on advocacy. Amy has more than 20 years of experience developing political strategy, grassroots organizing, influencing policy, and running political issue campaigns. She has worked on a variety of campaigns, ranging in scope from local community issues to state and national issues. She started Action Circles in 2010 and along with the Action Circles Team has served clients and offered training ever since. There was also an opportunity for attendees to visit exhibit tables, network, and chat over breakfast and lunch.

Topics covered included:

  • Legislative Process 101
  • Telling Your Story
  • Strategic Thinking for the Legislative Process 201

Please note that this conference was not recorded.

We hope to see you next year!
