Elections have consequences, not just for our businesses but for the people, communities, and environments that we strive to support. In order to make an informed decision in the upcoming election, the only thing better than doing your research is to meet the candidates themselves!

Join VBSR on October 20th at Caledonia Spirits for an exciting Networking Get-Together & Political Candidate Mixer with local businesses and political candidates from across the state. This is your opportunity to connect with candidates, network with socially responsible business leaders, and ensure that when you cast your ballot this November, you know the socially responsible business voice will be heard in the Green Mountain State and our Nation’s Capital.

Please note, VBSR is decidedly nonpartisan, so we are inviting all candidates from both local and statewide elections to attend—from your local state legislators to our future congressional leaders.

We will have plenty of time for networking and connecting with political candidates on Caledonia Spirit’s gorgeous outdoor patio right on the Winooski River or inside at their cocktail bar and lounge serving their signature Barr Hill spirits. There will be a cash bar, free non-alcoholic beverage options, and delicious food. Attendees will also have the option to participate in a self-guided tour of the distillery.

Free parking is available on site. Please make note of any accommodation requests when you register.

All members of New Hampshire Businesses for Social Responsibility are welcome to attend for free.
