2023 Annual Meeting & Celebration

Community Foundation President & CEO Dan Smith shared remarks from the Foundation, followed by a keynote address from Shaylyn Romney Garrett, co-author of "The Upswing," during the 2023 Annual Meeting & Celebration held on June 22, at The Paramount Theatre in Rutland.

Shaylyn Romney Garrett is a celebrated author, speaker, and social entrepreneur whose work offers a fresh take on political polarization, social isolation, economic inequality, and culture change. Her talk will elucidate a remarkable confluence of trends that brought us from an “I” society to a “We” society and then back again. She will conclude with inspiring lessons for our time from an earlier era, to put us on a path to becoming a society once again based on community.
