From the Presidents of VLCT, PACIF, and VERB to all members of these organizations:
As part of Town Fair, the Vermont League of Cities and Towns (VLCT), VLCT Property and Casualty Intermunicipal Fund, Inc. (PACIF), and VLCT Employment Resource and Benefits Trust, Inc. (VERB, dba “Unemployment Insurance Program”) will hold their annual business meetings on Thursday, October 6, at 1 PM. The meetings will be held in person at the Killington Grand Resort Hotel at 228 East Mountain Road in Killington, Vermont. The three annual meetings will be held consecutively: VERB will begin the meeting at 1:00 PM, the PACIF meeting will follow, and VLCT’s Annual Meeting is expected to convene around 2:00 PM.
At the bottom of this page are links to the meeting agenda, the draft minutes from last year’s annual meetings, and the VLCT Annual Meeting Governing Rules. Additional relevant materials that will be posted as they become available.
Every VLCT, PACIF, and VERB member that wants to vote at the Annual Meetings must designate voting delegate(s). To ensure that all three organizations’ members are properly represented and able to participate in the election of officers and any other item that may properly come before the membership, we are asking that your legislative body designate one official as the Voting Delegate for each VLCT organization that your municipal entity is a member of. You may delegate different people for each VLCT organization or a single person as the delegate for two or all three of the meetings. Keep in mind that only cities and towns are voting members of VLCT, while other municipal entities may participate in the PACIF and VERB meetings.
Designate your Voting Delegate(s) using the Town Fair registration site, www.vlct.org/townfair. Simply click Register, enter the delegate’s information, and, when prompted, specify whether the person is the delegate for VLCT, PACIF, VERB, or a combination. Then proceed to selecting the ticket for the delegate (and tickets for any additional non-delegate attendees).
Please consider nominating a deserving local official for one of VLCT's three awards using the link provided below. Nominations must be submitted by September 16. And while we do not anticipate immediate vacancies on any of the three Boards of Directors, if you are interested in either serving on or nominating a qualified person to serve on one of them, we welcome having lists of appropriate candidates on hand. Links to the three respective nomination forms will be available below until September 16, 2022.
This year’s Town Fair takes place over two full days. Along with the Annual Meetings, Thursday’s schedule includes breakfast with topic-specific roundtables, training sessions, and lunch. All attendees are encouraged to join the evening reception which includes dinner, awards, and an opportunity for laughter and fun through a comedy show hosted by municipal members. Friday continues with expanded educational sessions, the Exhibit Hall full of vendors, lunch, recreation time, and the annual meeting of Women Leading Government. We encourage all delegates and other attendees to take advantage of the exceptional networking and learning opportunities throughout the entire event.
With the continued presence of COVID-19, we encourage participants to take precautions to help us assemble safely, including being fully vaccinated and wearing a mask if they choose. Please do not attend if you feel unwell or have any symptoms of sickness. Should the State of Vermont or the CDC make changes to their COVID-related guidance, VLCT will notify attendees of any protocol changes.
Thank you for your membership in VLCT and its two risk-sharing trusts. We look forward to seeing you at the annual meetings!
