23rd Annual Spring Conference Thank You
VBSR's 23rd Annual Spring Conference took place on May 14, 2013 at UVM's Davis Center in Burlington. The day-long education and networking event featured nearly 350 attendees, 2 keynote speakers, and 40+ panelists and exhibitors. To top it all off, The Honorable Governor Peter Shumlin stopped by the conference at lunch to sign H.99 Equal Pay Act into law, giving VBSR E.D. one of the signature pens to honor VBSR's hard work towards getting the bill to pass.
THANK YOU to everyone to joined us and helped to make the conference a success! Please take our brief conference survey to let us know how we did, and don't forget to check out the photos on facebook!
