What a year it has been! Join us for our 2022 Annual Meeting. We will have a brief meeting where we will say a fond farewell to departing Board members, Alan Berolzheimer, David Callaway, and Corb Moister. We will also do a little business, voting on new Board members and reviewing our finances.

Vermont’s Town Meetings: Decision-Making at Home

Join us after our brief meeting for a talk by Susan Clark, author of Slow Democracy and All Those in Favor as she considers Vermont’s town meetings in the 21st century.

Norwich’s town meetings have had a long-standing role as a local legislature, where citizens come face to face to create their own laws (rather than electing representatives to do so). Social scientists rank Vermont among the highest in civic engagement and social capital, and Susan Clark looks at this direct, deliberative form of democracy as we look to the future.
